Please post any activities that you go into schools with that have often saved your sanity when you read those dreaded words "do what you like". For Numeracy I normally do, draw a rectangle then split it into four by two squares. Then think of as many ways that you can colour it in that are different. Usually keeps the children going for a whole Numeracy session. They also love the competition element of it. Literacy i do tongue twisters. Start out with children brainstorming as many words as they can think of that begin with the same letter as their first name. Then pass that sheet on to another child so they can continue the list. Then give it another child who has to think of sentences using the words that are written down. Finish with the children performing their poems. The children love the comic value of writing sentences such as "Horrible Hayley hates hanging hairy haunted horses". Also includes alliteration. Both these activities are easy to extend and differentiate, I have done them with every primary year since Christmas and the children love both of them. I am really in need of some afternoon activities for KS1 and KS2. Please help.
