Over the past few weeks the Friday children have been engaging in an obstacle course based on the tv series “Ninja Warriors”. This has provided the children with opportunities to watch, discuss and draw favourite parts of episodes where the challengers compete with each other to complete a challenging gross motor outdoor obstacle course. We have then created our very own obstacle course which challenges the children to think how to move their bodies to complete the course themselves. The children have had to use their fundamental movement skills which include vertical jumping and leaping as well as working on their balancing along different height and width balance beams, climbing up and over objects, manipulating their bodies to go over/under/through objects and string. Whilst engaging in these experiences the children are competing against themselves to complete the course safely as fast as they can go and enjoy encouraging each other as they watch on.
