Summer Term Behaviour Treat – Water Olympics!
During the summer term the choice was between a teddy bears’ picnic in the woods, an afternoon of den building or Water Olympics. While the results of the vote were very close, the children chose an afternoon of water Olympics, luckily the weather was kind to us and the chosen afternoon was very hot and sunny and we had great fun! The children worked in four house groups working round four different water based activities. They did egg and spoon races using water bombs, went fishing for marbles in a paddling pool using just their toes, played a team race passing cups and bowls of water under their legs and over their heads and (definitely the soggiest of the lot) had to lie down on their backs and pass a water soaked sponge along their team using their feet! The afternoon ended with a game called bucket heads that involved dropping water balloons from an upstairs window onto buckets on teachers’ heads! I am sure you can guess the most popular activity with the children!
