SPS Games Day Celebrations

         Today we celebrated our Olympic Games day with fun sports activities and chants

                                       Orange Team displayed the value of Determination


  We had fun doing Wheelbarrow relays with Mrs S. Naidoo from the Orange team on the field.

                                    It was very tiring but we enjoyed the relay activities.


Next we got into teams of  fours and we versed each other. There were 2 fifteen minute relay sessions for each colour team followed by a change to another colour team.
 This is how we took off from the start line.
 Here is how we handed the red, blue, green and black battons to our tag teams.

We had to remember to stay in our lanes and to hand over the battons quickly

to our partners- without dropping them. 

 The juniors relay runners were just as fast as the seniors

We had a fabulous SPS Games Day on Monday -with no rain to dampen our  champion spirits.

Chant afternoon with Te Manawa students

                Chant sharing afternoon with others from Te Manawa on the Senior court

We made a chant to share during the Olympic Games this year
Look at the flags were made

                                     We did research on google to find out about the Olympic games
In our inquiry groups we practiced some Physical and Emotional activities
Mrs Lal was amazed at how the Hauora model of Wellbeing or Wellness was being put into action while students were Relating to others in their groups. 
                                         Do you like our Focus and Levels in Frozen Sculptures?


"What an amazing job you all have done in integrating all 4 walls of the Hauora Wellness in one session!" said Mrs Lal , who comes in once a week to see how we learn in Rm 22. 
What an afternoon it turned out to be after all!
