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.
