Reverse Ringa Ringa Rosie

A fun little variation on the famous game with a dark past!

Game Type: Study Break

Recommended Ages: 5-7

Number Of Players: Whole class or small group

Equipment Required: Nil

Where To Play: Indoors or outdoors

Duration: 5 minutes

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!

Teaching Note

Reverse Ringa Ringa Rosie is a great way to introduce the concepts of clockwise and anti-clockwise.
