After the wonderful achievement of the 14 year old Ntando Mahlango at the Rio paralympics and the discussion it lead to, I decided to organise a mini paralympics for grade 2. We had lots of fun.
Ntando ran the 200m in just under 24 seconds - so first we tried to see how far we could run in the same time - which was just over 100 meters!
Next we had a pass a bean bag race without any arms..
The blind race was fun!
Then we threw and caught with only one arm. As well as using only our feet to throw with.
Lastly, there was the blind throwing - it was interesting to see how each child managed to improve their accuracy with practice.
