How To Play
Step One: Students join hands and make a circle. But here is the twist. Rather than stand up, everyone sits down to begin.
Step Two: Everyone sings the song and shuffles around in a circle on their bottoms to the tune, ‘ringa ringa rosie, a pocket full of posie, atishoo atishoo we all jump up!’.
Step Three: On ‘we all jump up’, all students jump to their feet. The challenge is to remain holding hands!
Reverse Ringa Ringa Rosie is a great way to introduce the concepts of clockwise and anti-clockwise.
