ABOUT THIS GAME
This is a Tag Game which is great fun. All my classes love this one and beg to play it every week so I keep it up my sleeve for a special treat . The slow motion element adds to the fun and helps children be more aware of body movement.

WHAT TO DO
Your first task is to teach the children the two postures, which are Toilet Posture and Flushing Toilet Posture
Choose three children to be the Taggers; the rest of the class walk around the hall in slow motion. The Taggers, meanwhile can walk at normal walking pace.
When a child is tagged she/he comes into Toilet Posture.
Another child can release her by 'flushing' her...and off she goes , back into the game. It is a fast physical game so I tend to shout out FREEZE after 40 seconds and change the Taggers so that everyone gets to be in posture.
Repeat three or four times and move on to the next stage of the lesson (Calming Stage) and always leave them wanting more
