PE Activity of the Week - Pirate Ship

Posted on 9th June 2017

This week’s PE Activity of the Week is Pirate Ship, a game that concentrates the children on the actions associated with commands.


S2S Courses plan, coordinate and prepare fun, energising games for children to participate in during our sports sessions. We like to be as unique as possible and ensure children have fun whilst working hard and learning new skills. Each week we share our favourite ‘PE Activity of the Week’ to give you an insight into our sessions and provide some inspiration for games of your own.

The Object of the Game:

The object of the game is to follow the commands and do the suitable actions.

Skills Acquired:

  • Listening skills
  • Teamwork
  • Coordination
  • Thinking skills

Instructions:

  1. The children should be taught the commands; it might be easier to write them on a whiteboard that they can all see.
  2. The children should line up in front of the teacher who will shout the commands

Command

Action

Main Deck

Run back and form the original line in front of the teacher (children do not have to be in the same order).

Man the Lifeboats!

OR call out a number (e.g. 6) and the children have to get into groups of six and "row" their lifeboat.

Scrub the Decks

Children crouch down and pretend to clean the floor with their hands.

Captain's Coming

Children salute and shout out "Aye Aye Captain"

Hit the Deck

Children lie down on their stomachs as quickly as possible.

Up on Deck!

"Land AHoi"
