Mini Commonwealth Games at our School

This week sees the end of our Healthy Choices Week.

As part of our activities, the 5/6 classes had to plan and run a mini Commonwealth Games afternoon for a Year level.

Our class had to plan and run games for the Prep children in our school.

We had eight groups of 5/6 students, each with about 10 Prep students.

We had the responsibility of designing the game, organizing it, testing it to see if it worked, gathering the equipment which we needed, and also running the game on the day.

We had four games and each group of 10 Preps rotated between each game, so everyone managed to have a go at each activity.

The four activities were:

1. Ice cream cone zig-zag, or ping pong ball and spoon race

2. Tunnel Ball

3. Bouncing Ball and through the Hoop race

4. Mini Hurdles with through the hoop twist.

This fun afternoon coincided with the Prep’s 100 days of school. The Preps really enjoyed the games!

We had also designed medals which we gave to each of the Preps. They had a great time and so did we!

The mini Commonwealth Games gave each of us an opportunity of stepping up and taking responsibility for someone in the Junior classes. It also fitted in with the SEL and Buddy program at our school.

    The Mini Comonwealth Games was a great idea because all the preps had a lot of fun. It was very fun organising and helping the preps. But at the end I felt tired and the preps felt very tired.

  5. Hi Mrs Francis,
    We really enjoyed the mini Commonwealth Games and preparing it for the preps to play. We hope we will be able to do it again. It was really hard to control the excited preps but it was also a lot of fun.

  8. Hi Mrs Francis,
    The Mini Commonwealth Games was fun. It all ran properly and the preps were having a lot of fun too. Jason was encouraging the preps in his group, Jordan was helping them do the right thing in his group and Kyle instructed them by demonstrating how to play the game. The preps learnt lots of new skills and we liked teaching them. It was tiring and Healthy Week was a blast of lots of FUN.
