LATERAL LEARNING WEEK
This year, Lateral Learning Week was only for three days, yet it was packed with fun-filled activities no one would like to have missed!
The Standard Sevens took part in a variety of activities in this year’s Lateral Learning Week. On Monday, our day was kicked-off with the challenging rebus puzzle. Next was aerobics with Mr Gara, and finally the painting and display of Rolly Polly in the Basket, which we did with Ms. Dhaliwal. Monday was great, but Tuesday was the whole pack of dazzling activities. We made delicious ice-cream, printed lovely designs on our white shoes and t-shirts, but what truly spelled Tuesday out for me was the brilliant game of dodge ball and making a stunning outfit out of newspaper. Though Tuesday was awesome, our last day of Lateral Learning, Wednesday, still can’t be forgotten. First, we made monster bookmarks; second, we listened to an astounding story; third, we made peg furniture. After a brief break, we painted cacti on the wall, and, to finish off, we painted beautiful flowers on planks.
Many of the Standard Sevens’ activities which they participated in, concentrated on enhancing their skills. For example, T-shirt printing, making an outfit out of newspapers and making furniture using pegs required creativity. Furthermore, activities like aerobics were brimming with absolute excellence, teaching the sevens coordination, team work and, more importantly, team spirit. Dodge ball was especially pleasurable for the Standard Sevens thoroughly enjoyed this activity, which made our Lateral Learning Week full of delight!
The younger grades also had loads of fun, and we were extremely sad to wish Lateral Learning Week away, but it remains, unforgettable!
