Mr Lindop: May 2019
Teamwork made the dream work on the first week of Taskmaster club.
After a special video message from the TV's Taskmaster Assistant, Alex Horne, our "taskers" worked brilliantly together to solve three bizarre tasks. We mixed the teams up every time so everyone got to try tasks with different people.
First, the teams worked together to find as many items as they can from a shopping list and put them in their team's tray in 3 minutes. The list included items such as a pencil no longer than 12cm, a shoe, a book with the word "task" in it and a drawing of the Taskmaster on holiday.
Next, our taskers had 10 minutes to throw a teabag into a cup from the furthest distance. Sounds simple, but actually it proved more difficult than we thought. However, when our teams started to think outside the box and realised if they wet the teabag it was easier to throw, the distances improved. Well done to the winning team for an impressive 4m 20cm distance.
Finally, our teams took to the field to score a goal with a plastic bag. Points were awarded for speed and style. Our teams had really got the hang of thinking outside of the box (or bag!) and straight away went to get a ball to put into their bags to make them easier to kick. Very well done to Dom, Izzy and Ellie for scoring a great team goal worthy of any cup final!
Fabulous work, taskers! More tasks next week.
