Children are SEATED lined up at in their house colours behind the waiting line (white velcro).
Teachers : After checking that the scooters/goates/quoits/beanbags have been returned to the original line and checking with the Station Leaders that it is ok to go ahead, you can start.
Directions : On signal "The person in front move down to the line" the child at the front of each house moves down to the starting line and sits on the scooter with feet on starting line.
On signal, "Are you ready sitting down safely"…
"Look at your gate and tires"…
When each race is completed and the children reach the start /finish line, the teacher need to check how many champions have completed the challenge.
“Let us see how many champions we have “ – and they kids who have just done the race, do a “hip hip hurrah !
Regarding the race : all you have to ensure is that there is a child from each house colour on the starting line. If there is a child missing, just have the next in line step in. (if children are absent or you have a class of 21/22)
