I'm a cricket coach who runs sessions for primary school children (ages 8-11). I play a popular game with my group where batters are told they can hit the ball 360 degrees and fielders are told they have to get the ball to a certain place to get the batter out. Would you say because I have told them what to do but not how to do it that this game is following the ideas of this blog? I usually leave the group to figure it out for themselves and only offer (partial) guidance if they are struggling.

Hi Jack, the game sounds great and a different approach. Guidance over 'telling' is always more favourable as well as encourage them (in this case the fielders) to develop 'strategies' - what is the best way to get the ball to a particular base? Give them options and ask them why. Recently played a game on a court of human noughts and crosses and then asked the group to change the game - how could they make it better, what new rules or challenges would they add. They had much better ideas than me! Guidance came in only to ensure it had purpose (what are the aims) and was safe. I posted a video of it on Twitter (@twowheelprof

Hi Richard, many thanks. I think I have just viewed the video - is it the one 'try scoring tic tac toe'? I've retweeted it because it looks like a brilliant game!!
