Activity Steps with Pupils - Primary 2

Circle Time – Teacher Led

Introduction:

Discuss with class the benefits of using screens for learning and connecting with family and friends. 

  1. Collect screen time tracking forms.
  2. Ask each pupil to list 3 activities they like to do after school which do not involve screens.
  3. Pupils take part in a screen free activity either as a class indoor or outdoor. 
  4. Class create a screen free book.  Pupils draw a picture of their favourite screen free activity and get them to write a brief description about the activity: why they like the screen free activity or take a photograph of each pupil doing their favourite non-screen activity with a brief description.  Teacher can put the book together and read to class.  Class can share/read to other pupils.

  • Exercise, physical activities, eating healthy
  • Non-screen activities: playing outside, going to the park, playing indoors, reading, drawing, riding bikes, playing with a ball etc
  • Spending time with family & friends without screens
