Flag Race

The pupils of each aisle constitute a team. Flags are given to the

pupils in each front seat. On the signal to go, each pupil holding a

flag steps out on the right hand side of the seat, runs around the

front of his own aisle, back on the left hand side, around the rear

seat, returning to his own seat up the right hand aisle, and hands the

flag on to the one next behind him, who continues the race. When all

the pupils in the aisle have circled their row of seats with the flag,

the last one, instead of returning to his seat, runs forward and holds

the flag above his head in front of his aisle. The one first succeeding

in reaching the front, wins the race.

In this race it is often better to run two aisles at a time and thus

avoid the possibility of pupils bumping into each other in their

attempt to race through the aisles. In this way the various winners can

race against each other, making an interesting contest.
