On Friday we went to our very own Kindergarten Olympics! What a great day we had. We competed with seven other kindergartens, in a range of activities designed to stretch our physical skills and align our brains. We had lots of fun moon-hoppering, soccer goal scoring, sack racing, crawl tunneling, balancing, throwing bean bags and parachute tossing. We held a medal ceremony at the end and everyone received a medal. Well done Manaia children! The day was put on by Sport Northland, our thanks to them for organising such a great event.
Working with physical skills helps muscles to develop, and the brain to switch on, encouraging our children to become agile helps to prepare them for school and life.
