Y2 WOW Activity, Summer Term 2017

For our Wow activity this term, we gave the year 2 children the challenge of completing a range of activities to establish the qualities required for a successful leader. The children found great enjoyment (and some frustration!) in trying to build the tallest tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti, fitting 6 people onto a piece of newspaper, guiding a blindfolded partner through a maze, constructing a basket out of paper to carry delicate eggs over a rickety bench and instructing each other in drawing an object without telling them what it is!

We completed the challenges with a photo finish where a group of children had to cross a line at exactly the same time.  We hope to link the skills that the children referred to in their reflection as we look at a range of leaders over the coming weeks.
