9 We played a modified version of the game Blow Wind, Blow that aids to develop our listening skills, our reaction time, and our agility! Different types of instructions were given before each round. We had to listen very carefully and act accordingly! Those with the blue sticks, half-squat! Those with the yellow sticks, do a unicorn! Those with pink and green sticks, balance on one foot! When your colour is colour is called, run to the centre and sit down! 301 Upper Paya Lebar Road S(534934) Tel: Fax: Page 9

10 When your colour is called, run to the centre and make the superman pose! 301 Upper Paya Lebar Road S(534934) Tel: Fax: Page 10

12 To further develop our reaction time, we were split into colour groups and we sat down. When our colours were called, we were to stand up quickly and sprint to stand on one of the crosses (X) marked out on the floor. After which, we played another modified version of What s the time Mister Wolf. Instead of asking the number of steps/jumps, when the teacher s back is turned, we were to walk/hop towards her And when she turns (at any point in time!) we will have to! 301 Upper Paya Lebar Road S(534934) Tel: Fax: Page 12
