(Group 3 playing pass the stone with Miss Kelly)

On thursday the 12th of February we had a day full of fun and exciting activities. The day was about teaching all the students about inclusion. Some of the activities were about teamwork and cooperation. We played games such as pass the stone, wink murder and battleships and destroyers. Our year six leaders were in the same groups as their buddies to help them during the day.
