Grade 2/3 Adventure Challengers

The grade 2 and 3’s have recently finished their epic adventures in team-building and problem solving.

G2 managed to navigate their way around the ‘Island of the Monkey King’, working on their teamwork skills to negotiate all of the challenges. They successfully discovered and transported the skull of the monkey king and now have the ability to eat as many bananas as they want. They can also listen to each others ideas

G3 used their problem-solving skills to infiltrate a robot gang’s Bomb Factory and work their way up each level. They needed to utilize their problem-solving loop by Identifying the problem, creating ideas, choosing and experimenting with the ideas and then establish whether there were any new problems that arose. Of course, there were always new problems but they tackled each one with vigour and managed to save Hanoi from the gang, you can all feel safer tonight from their efforts.

Right now G2/3 are doing different versions of small ball games. Ask them about them and throw some balls around outside of school to practice everyones hand-eye coordination.

In our current Adventure Challenge unit, the G4 students are trying to establish a a base camp on Mars. They have to work together as a team and are focusing on their communication skills, using positive and clear, verbal and non-verbal language and be active listeners to help solve the problems encountered.
