  1. Brad

    Just had a go with my Year 5 class. They had a great time, all groups achieved Level One Success and one group even got to Level Two. Great engagement and good discussion about leadership and taking turns.

      Glad you enjoyed it Brad. Tough challenge for 10-11 year olds, so I’m pleased one of the groups achieved Level 2 status. Did you wend in the message about ‘what is possible?’ with this group?
