Lee's session with the morning children - Nov 18th

Lee was trialling a new session for the very first time with our children. Kindergarten children working together in pairs to practice the skills, co-ordination and motivation to be physically active.

First of all - the game of warm up - if the wolf[child] touched you, you had to squat down on the circle. That was the tricky part - the wolf and children could only move around the roped area by jumping from spot to spot.
Next came working in pairs, holding hands to rotate arms and shoulders together. Then as one child stood still and upright on a frisbee, their partner held their hand and ran around in circles as they rotated their friend on the frisbee!
Again, in pairs, children held their noodles and linked them together as a chain and then with a stable and strong stance - pulled. Honestly, hardly any children fell over - their grip and arm strength was strong!
To finish the session, a big ball was kicked around the circle - we noticed the anticipation as children waited for the ball to come and then kick the ball - future All Whites - you just never know!
