Keshav shared the game Monopoly with the class which requires team work to play. He explained the role of the banker and the role of the other players to buy places and charge other players who land on places they have bought. He explained that when he plays with his grandparents they have to talk about decisions together and agree on what to buy. Sota was excited to tell us that he also has the same game and plays it with his mum and dad.
Ella showed everyone a game which requires two people to play it. Keshav asked who she plays with and Ella explained it's usually with her sister or mum. Amanda was interested in how to play the game and Zahin helped explain that pressing the buttons bumps the heads. Ella told us she plays the game after doing her homework. A few of us enjoyed trying out the game.
Swini brought in some photos of a special lantern she made. She explained her role was to cut heart shaped pieces of paper and her dad helped paste them onto the glass while her mum took photos. The lantern was made for the lantern festival her family were celebrating. Jiwoo was interested in how she made the handle so Swini explained she had to bend thin metal. Keshav asked how she bent the metal to which Swini answered her dad helped her bend it with his hands. Sophia asked how the light works so Swini told us it has a battery. Then Amanda wondered how you turn the light on, Swini said there is a switch to turn it on and off.
Amanda shared all about her team work at home with her grandma and auntie. She helps in the kitchen and with setting the table for dinner.
Jiwoo showed us how to platy the game 'Who's left'. You need a partner to play and have to ask questions about characters' appearances. We also did some team work to set the game up. Some of us enjoyed playing it with Jiwoo later in the day.
Zahin brought in a lego car which he had made with his mum. He used team work as his mum helped him by explaining the instructions and his dad put on the wheels. Ella was interested to find out how it rolled so we took turns at rolling it to people across the circle.
Sota brought in some clay models of sea creatures that he made at home with his mum. He explained he took 3 days to make the models as the clay had to dry and harden before he could paint them.
Gaku showed a picture of his family and friends playing a Japanese board game which is similar to monopoly. Amanda was interested to find out more about what the board looked like. Jiwoo asked how to play and Keshav wanted to know what all the different colours were for. Swini asked who made took the photo.
