The Game Changers
What is The Game Changers?
Game Changers is an intervention group for KS1 and KS2 which take place every Thursday afternoon for selected children. We take part in various activities during the afternoon including Health and Wellbeing, Teambuilding and social interaction. The Game Changers derives from a sports documentary which embarks on a quest to find optimal diet for human performance and health in sports and team work games.

Game changers this week for KS1 was all about coordination, strength and of course team work. Tug of War. We spoke about the importance of team work and being in sync with each other. One person can not pull while the others don't so we made sure that each team were pulling together in the right direction to reach the end goal. Our children really enjoyed this activity so below we have a few photos from that session. More hands make light work!!

Games changer this week for KS2 was a very active team building game called Capture the flag. The whole of objective the game is for players to venture into the opposing team's territory, grab the flag and return with it to their territory without being tagged. The flag is defended mainly by tagging opposing players who attempt to take it. Within their own territory players are "safe", meaning that they cannot be tagged by opposing players. Once they cross into the opposing team's territory they are vulnerable. Children really enjoy this game as it involves team work and agility to get past an opponent.

We started off we a game of stuck in the mud to get our heart rate going then we went into some non verbal communication activities like last week. The children had to get into height order, age order, shoe size order and birthday month order. They worked really well together and you could see the children using different ways to communicate to each other.
