P7B have been doing some Christmas reset! Lots of thinking and cooperating on a Winter’s afternoon!
Here’s P7a this morning playing a seasonally themed game of Reset.
Sometimes when we play games they just aren’t fair and this can lead to a few arguments. Maybe the teams aren’t fair, or the rules don’t seem fair.
This week P7 played some games and ran some races that weren’t fair.
Did we give up, or did we show some determination and resilience, some true GRIT and try our hardest under the challenging circumstances?

To be a good footballer, rugby player, gymnast, swimmer, dancer or athlete you have to be able to make complicated decisions and solve problems under pressure and at speed. In our PE board games we have to work as part of a team and under pressure to make tricky decisions whilst moving. Thinking and Moving games . . . . .
When we play games in PE we play lots of small sided games: 2 v 2s, 3 v 3s, 4 v 4s.
We have to referee our own games and some times there are arguments in our games.
Alot of the time the arguments are over rules.
In the games of ambiguity there are lots of rules missing or rules which aren’t made clear . . . . they’re . . . ambiguous . .
Watch us trying to make sense of the games and work together to make the rules clearer.
Reset is another of our Thinking Games, another game of uncertainty where we don’t know something important when we start playing. Problem solving, communication and cooperation are all key to the team succeeding.
