Pupils stand in a circle.

Pupil 1 throws an imaginary red ball to someone across the circle.

At the same time they say the name of the person they are throwing to followed by “Red ball”.

Pupil 2, who catches the imaginary red ball, says:

“Red ball, thank you”


So it goes like this

P1:           (NAME) Red ball (Throws imaginary ball)

P2:           Red ball, thank you. (Catches imaginary ball)

P2:           (NAME) Red ball (throws imaginary ball)

P3:           Red ball, thank you (catches imaginary ball)

P3:           (NAME) Red ball (throws imaginary ball)
