The Piwakawaka team have been developing key motor skills this term during our Physical Education rotation activities.
We all come together twice a week and get into our mixed teams and have fun while developing our essential P.E. skills. We have been practising balancing, jumping, skipping, throwing and catching by participating in different activities including ‘egg and spoon’ races, hula hoop challenges, sack races, and playground obstacle courses.
A bonus that has come from working in these activity groups has been the way the older Piwakawaka children have taken on leadership roles within their teams by helping their younger peers. All of the Piwakawaka kids make their teachers proud!
