What a super Transition Day we had with the new P4/5/6 class this week! Mrs Smith came in for the first part of the morning when we spent some time getting to know each other with the Find the Fib game. Everyone (including Mrs Henderson and Mrs Smith) had to think of 3 things to share with the class about themselves. BUT, 1 of them had to be a fib. We had fun trying to guess which statement was false. Sometimes it was very tricky to decide!
We spent a little time writing down all of the things that were important to us. Some people had similar interests but it was also good to point out that it’s OK to like different things too.
We then got into groups and took part in some team building games. We played Lower the Hoop, Pass the Hoop, Lego building Relay and Silent Birthday Line up. We managed to put everyone in order from youngest to oldest…without saying a word! Well done everyone! Amazing!
The afternoon was spent doing a STEM activity. Each team had the challenge of building a newspaper bridge which would be strong enough to hold a textbook. Some bridges were so strong that they were able to hold more than 10 books! It was great to see how everyone worked together as a team and took responsibility for the task.
We are looking forward to welcoming the class back in August where we can continue to get to know each other and work as a team.
