The children at Mornington House made medals with Melissa before the day, using recycled jar lids and foil.
On the day we did:
Races – running, jumping, hopping
Tug ‘o’ war in teams of two
Throwing balls into a bucket and counting the score
Team games – ball over the head and between the knees, passing a ball around the circle (timed challenge).
Afterwards we talked about the podium and what it means to receive a medal. The children received a certificate and a medal for taking part. We reinforced what it means to support your team and why we cheer our team on.
