During the first week of the second term, many of our grade 6 pupils were away on various sports tours. We decided that the teachers and children who did not accompany them should have just as much fun too(while learning, of course)!
We divided the children into two teams. They then had to name themselves and come up with a team war cry. Galaxy One and Boere Mense impressed us with their creativity and team spirit!
Our four days were filled with various activities that were not only enjoyable, but tasty too! The activities included: designing and making board games; a drum line; creating a trailer for the classic movie ‘The Goonies‘; soccer, paper jet crafting;designing a three course (and themed) menu and perhaps the most popular activity – bringing that menu to life in our very own version of Masterchef. The teachers were fortunate enough to be the judges for this and from my own personal experience let me assure you that it was no great hardship!
Teams were allocated points for the different activities and although the final points were very close, only one team could be the ultimate Playing @ Home winners…
Well done Galaxy 1! An absolutely fun-filled week was had by all!
