At the start of Term 1 the Year 5 students had their WOW Day titled ‘Super Sports.’ The students came to school dressed in sporting gear. They began their fun in the gym where they were divided up into two teams. Each time the whistle blew a new sport was announced including the number of students allowed on each team. The games went for a few minutes before they swapped over. The students needed to be ready for whichever sport was called out and got the opportunity of playing a variety of different sports.
After this the we went out onto the grass and played a version of T-ball using a frisbee. The students had to work together as a team and come up different strategies to get more home runs. At the end of all the fun and games, three buckets of water balloons came out. After playing a few rounds of duck, duck, goose using water balloons the students were then given the opportunity to have a water balloon fight to cool down and then finish off with icy-poles. It was a great way to start our theme about sports and the importance of teamwork.
