• This Month's Drama Game-The Bean Game
    5 Feb 2019

    This month’s drama game is a simple game, perfect for a class with an abundance of energy! The ‘Bean Game’ encourages, movement, alertness and an ability to remember instruction.

    How it works:

    Teach your children the different ‘beans’ and call out each individual bean, ensuring the children action the correct call.

    (Make it a touch more competitive: the last person into the position is ‘out’, or becomes a ‘judge’ with the teacher. The last bean standing is the winner!

    Runner bean- run round the space or on the spot

    Frozen bean- still as a statue

    Jumping bean- jumping on spot

    Broad bean- make yourself as big/wide as you can

    String bean- make yourself as tall as you can

    Baked bean- crouch into a ball

    Beans on Toast- lie flat on the ground (optional)

    Top Tip:

    Don’t feel the need to start off using every bean. Start with a few, then gradually introduce a few more as the game goes on to give the children greater challenge.

    Further Activities:

    Try using different characters, animals or anything that can have multiple actions.
