Parachuting Fun!

Crew 16 enjoyed some parachuting fun in PE today! They had to communicate and plan in order to use the parachute to control the ball. It was not as easy as it sounds! The crew had some fantastic ideas and they listened to each other carefully. They successfully tried and adapted their strategies which allowed them to achieve their goals!

After some energetic parachuting (and running around!) Crew 16 enjoyed an intense game of Jenga! Again, the communication and support from each other was brilliant and even the opposing teams couldn’t help supporting each other – that just shows how strong our crew relationships are!

We are collecting Aldi stickers
