Class 7 and 8 were flung into combat this week when they were visited by Wayne and Andy from UK Military School. They were set a range of tasks to develop their teamwork skills and to demonstrate the CDRILS core responsibilities - courage, discipline, respect for others, integrity, loyalty and self-less commitment.
Children thoroughly enjoyed the challenges set and showed what great things they can achieve when working together as a team: a core value in our ethos at St Francis de Sales.
Magnetic Bomb – Could they work as a team to guide a tennis ball from one side of the cage to the other through a series of pipes being careful not to let the ‘bomb’ drop and explode?
Nuclear Reactor – Could the team manage to remove the reactor from the target area and get it to safety using just a rope making sure it didn’t fall over and detonate?
Quicksand River – Could they cross the path using tyres and planks without falling into the sand?
Get Water to Africa- Could the children use pipes , connectors and cones to transport water from one side of the hall to the other?
Class 7 and 8 showed excellent problem solving skills and determination throughout and most of all great success when working together. Well done!
