Games for school halls and outdoors
What games would you recommend for my school?
Our Giant Chess and Draughts games are great for developing strategic skills and also enormous fun. Boards are sold separately to the pieces, but quite often schools mark out a permanent board on the playground instead.
These Giant Connect 4 games are very popular with schools. The children need to take turns to drop counters in at the top and be the first to get four in a row diagonally, vertically or horizontally.
Competitively priced range of good quality Table Tennis Tables for high intensity use. These selected Table Tennis Tables are particularly suitable for schools, colleges and universities.
A team game for 2 teams of 8 players. Excellent to use in PE, and we know of one school where it is a very popular game at break. The more robust League Bat and Traps are better for school use.
Great fun for younger children who get to climb the ladders and slide down the snakes themselves, rather than using counters.
A fun game where a wooden "smiter"- or beanbag, if used with younger children- is used to knock down numbered skittles. Can be used to build number skills- click on the link for a page of ideas for use in schools.
A compendium of school Sports Day races. Funday Racing includes: sack race, bean bags, egg & spoon and 3 legged race
Rope quoits are a good activity for the hall, and could also be used as an event at the school fair. Rope quoits may be played on a single stake or on several stakes arranged as a cross.
