This week we have been learning about working co-operatively.

We made some art for our classroom and did an activity that helped us to understand what the phrase "Many hand make light work" means.

We had to get a number of team mates and a egg safely across the courts without letting them touch the ground. There were some safe spots (hoops) that we could use to rest along the way. We realised that we had to all work together to get the job done. In some cases we really got how 'many hands make light work'
