Today was the last day of term 3 at Russell Street School. It was an extremely busy day full of fun and excitement! We watched a movie, ate a fantastic cake made by Liam’s mum and presented assembly. Check out the photos!
Tomorrow R3 are taking on 7 Wonders in an obstacle challenge as part of the Global Children’s Challenge. The idea is for both classes to design a mini obstacle course then combine the 2 courses and see which class can do the most in 15 minutes.
Check out the simple course that Georgia O and Emma designed.
This week’s hands-on homework task is to complete some sort of physical activity everyday after school.
Since R3 are taking part in the Global Children’s Challenge I thought this would be an appropriate task for the week. You need to bring me in a photo of you completing the activity to receive your credits.
R3 are blog buddies with Mr Toft’s class in Ottawa, Canada and we have collaborated with them on a few projects over the year. They are also taking part in the Global Children’s Challenge so hopefully we can link up with them during the challenge.
Anyway they have just started their new school year and they have sent us a message. Just click on the picture to check it out!
As you know R3 are taking part in the Global Children’s Challenge and yesterday we found out that our friends at Normandale School in Lower Hutt are doing it too!
Anyway to make it even more interesting they have challenged us to a little competition as well!
So what are we going to do? Well we got together on google Doc and came up with some ideas for collaboration between the two classes. You can check these ideas out by clicking below.
Today we decided to kick off the challenge with an activity to see which class could do the most steps in an hour! Wow, what a challenge! What did we do? Well I took everyone on a run around the school and then out around Russell Street. It was exhausting but we kept going!
How many steps did we do? Well in 1 hour we did 181,764 steps between 27 people. That’s an average of 6,732!! Beat that Normandale!
