Students could create their own game of 'La Marelle' using chalk in the playground. They could play this game to consolidate their use of numbers in French. Students could discuss the verbs needed to write a set of instructions for this game - jump, throw, hop and so on. They could create a word bank of these verbs and use it to write their own set of instructions. They could illustrate their writing with photographs of them playing the game. Students could also research other French counting games and teach these to their classmates.
