Collaborative games that show Responsibility and Respect

As part of our class Restart/Reset coming into this new term, was to notice how we work together and use our values to support each other.  This game is called Satellites, where the team has to remain joined but move together to ensure their balloon doesn’t touch the ground.

Our favourite game was called Bridgeball, however we haven’t learnt to play On/Off the Lines yet. Please ask us more if you would like to learn any of these games.

Mahi Tahi Collaborative art work

On the final week of Term 2 all of Waenga Team students took part in Mahi Tahi type activities.  One of the tasks was to work together to create something that was bigger than themselves.

Each student was given a template to personalise, knowing that it would be joined to each other into the Tumbling Blocks quilt pattern, using the inspiration of Thank You X’s street art using the same idea.


But what do you think?

Cricket workshop

Just like the other classrooms in Waenga team, Room 26 also had the cricket workshop.  We really enjoyed the beat the ball/French cricket type game.

Room 26 students really pushed each other, practising their catching accuracy with 2 hands and single hand catches. They showed great collaboration with their catching buddies, and a healthy sense of competition to see who were the most accurate and consistent catchers.

the Black Caps and White Ferns definitely have some future players in the making.

Ka pai.
