This morning our class delivered 9 different events to 1/2M and 1/2MC in a “Mini Olympics”. We spent a week planning and organising the rotations, along with writing procedures and certificates. The class taught events from the olympics along with events they’d like to have seen in Rio. The events were Relay, wheelbarrow race, distance throw, frisbee, sprints, hurdles, soccer, high jump, egg and spoon race.

What was the best part of the morning for you?
