Positive Relationships

We are learning about positive relationships. We recapped about what positive means (& it's opposite... negative!)
Relationships are how we get along with others... it can be with our friends, class mates, teachers, family members, sports coaches...

"KiwiCan says...playing fair is what we do,
Taking turns for me and you."

We played "The Blob". 
We had to spread out and try to tag people to make them join in our blob. The blob would corner people to capture them! Judging by the smiles, everyone had loads of fun playing the game! Owens ferocious roar was quite frightening!

We had a big discussion around fairness and fair play, as well as getting people involved in the game. We shared how we might feel if we weren't being involved in the game. There are times when we don't want to join in because we think we can't do it, but when we give it a go we find out it's actually really fun!

For our activity, we were in four groups and we were given cards that had something that we had to make with our bodies. Everyone had to be included and participate.

What a fantastic fun filled start to KiwiCan for term 2!!!
