Our Buddy Class Challenge

Well Friday saw us working with our buddy class of Yr8s, Room 5, to see how long we could last doing the '4 chair challenge'. 
We organised ourselves into teams of 4 consisting of 2 Yr7s and 2 Yr8s. It was boys challenging the girls. Game on!

A very enthusiastic team of volunteers demonstrated exactly what was (and was not!) required and we discussed various tips for best results. 

Some questions we were thinking about as we carried out the challenge were:
'Does height matter?'
'Does weight matter?'
'Will individual strength influence the outcome?'

This is how it's done.

Teams worked together to enable everyone to have turns attempting the challenge.

The strain began to show...

... And the winning team was found!


  1. Hey Room 16 and Room 5...this looks like a really fun 'buddy class' activity. Looks like it was a lovely day too to go outside and have a challenge like this. So I presume the girls team won the challenge? Did you find answers to your questions and height and weight?

  2. Hey. My name is Amy from St Mary's school in Hastings. Well done to the winning team. I looks very hard but all of my class is willing to try. A think you guys have inspired our teacher to let us have a go.


I would love some feedback on my post...
