Settling into year 4
The children have settled in well into year 4 and have enjoyed taking part in a range of outdoor activities such as creating class logos and nightline.
For their class logo, they had to work as a team to collect natural resources around the school grounds. Their logo had to contain their teacher's name in some way, but the rest of the design was up to them. They collaborated well and made some wonderful designs.
For Nightline, they worked collaboratively to complete a blindfolded obstacle course that winded through trees and around other obstacles such as tyres and the trim trail. This lesson was a test of communication skills, leadership and risk-awareness whilst enhancing trust within a class. To complete the course, the children were put into pairs, with one child blindfolded and the other child acting as their leader, guiding them through the obstacles. The blindfolded children had to keep hold of the rope at all times.
