Parachute Fun

I always find it fascinating to watch how behaviour changes when you get a parachute out. The first thing the children do is smile – then they get very loud! As soon as they get a handle of the parachute they start to shake it as vigorously as they can. There is always great excitement. For many in our Pre Prep this was their first experience of a parachute & they had a great time. One thing we will have to work on is teamwork – we started to get there, but I think we’ll need a few more sessions for this to really develop. What did improve was their co-ordination and the realisation that each and everyone of them influenced how the parachute moved. Next time we’ll try and do it on a sunny day!
