Knucklebones!

This afternoon, 5F taught 5C the Roman game of KNUCKLEBONES. In Roman times they would have played the game with sheep bones! However, year 5 improvised using multi-link instead.

 

The game is similar to the one we know as ‘Jacks’. It uses skills such as fine motor skills, patience and quick reactions.

 

5C were very grateful for 5F’s excellent explanations of the game, their modelling and support when giving their instructions.

 

Perhaps your child could show you how to play – here are some photos…
