Last week, some year 6 pupils spent a morning in the Hayes, collecting and looking for items to make a ‘Find it’ type game for younger pupils. One group, in particular, worked really hard and created a fantastic set of cards, all laminated and bound. They chose a great set of different things to find, from leaves and berries to works and beetles.
As a reward for their hard work, they trialled their challenge with the Year 3 Green Team.
Heading to the Hayes, the Yr 6 girls spread their cards out on a tree trunk. They explained to the Green team that they would have to try and find the things on the cards. When they had found it, they would return to the tree trunk, show their item and, in return, get the card. The aim was to get as many cards as they could!
The pupils spent an hour in the words, searching high and low for all the different items and found most of them. The Green team also came up with some ideas as to different items that could be added to the game.
We all had a fantastic time and the challenge worked really well.
