Monkey Bar Champions

Hayley "Beverly, can you take lots of photos of me doing all of the Monkey Bars and put it on the computer so that I can see it on my computer at home?"
Certainly, Hayley. What a star. You have such confidence on the bars and you were even trying out new tricks to show. You know how to share your work with your family, who are so interested in all that you do at Kindergarten and are very involved in your education. I'm sure they will be very proud to see your skills and maybe even challenge you further.

It was great to do this alongside your friend James. James you have learnt how to do the monkey bars with confidence. Maybe you can work alongside Hayley to learn how to do the monkey bars up hill.

On the monkey bars we have to think of so many things to do at the same time. We practice co-ordination - moving different limbs at the same time to do different things. We strengthen our muscles, particularly our arm muscles, but also have to think about what are legs are doing too. And we have to take a risk. When we first begin we have to trust that our arms can hold our bodies and learn how to fall safely when our arms are tired. We learn to persevere - to practice and try and practice again. No wonder these children are called our Monkey Bar Champions!!
