Introducing new members to the group - especially useful with a large new intake
Sit the group in a circle (adults and children). Ask everyone to think of something that they like to do. Then pick someone to start by telling the group for example I like to swim. The person to their right will then tell the group what the first person liked and adding what they like to do, for example â€œFred likes to swim, I like to walkâ€.
This continues right around the circle until the last person has to say what everyone likes to do.
Other members of the group can prompt by miming the activity if anyone falls into difficulty.
**Amending this activity so that each child only has to say their name and something they like as well as just the previous person's name and what they like, due to very large group and saving some time.**
