Narrator: Ok Scientists and friends, Today is Super Sadiq Sports Day. 


Lets have a cheer.


Actor 1 with all scientists to do this movement catchy cheer. 


Today,we are going to begin with the Friendly Freeze. 

Show water and show ice 

One is a liquid and one is a solid but both are the same. They are both water. 


Water takes time in a cool place to become ice and freeze. In friendship, we also do the friendly freeze. We take the time to think about what we are going to say and what we are going to do with our friends to be sure we don’t hurt them with our words and actions. When we do the friendly freeze, we are caring and cooling the friendship so beautifully. 

Today, we all gonna eat ice lollies and take home a really amazing ice lolly maker which we can make lollies and think about the friendly freeze. If possible do the science experiment. Reveal the ayat. 


Game 1

Scientists are you ready?

Then we get the red and blue group to do the athar race.

Sing chorus of rhyme and use key words while explaining what children need to do. Please be mindful of the laundry basket. Children can hold from down also. Just a little higher than ground. Connect to count on me rhyme. 


Game 4

Balance Obstacle Course

Balance Beam and through tunnels on step and over step, crawl under the table and then through the rungs of the ladder and out. Sing chorus of rhyme here. Balance bean bag on head.


Game 5

Friendly Freeze game


Children run around to science of friendship rhymes and then scientist stops the rhyme and says freeze. Children rush to the pink cushions and sit down. when they hear the word freeze, they become statues. Talk about how important it is to stop and freeze in friendship to taffakur and think about what to say, what to do, etc. Ask a question here, really quickly about thinking – is it good?, is it pure?  is it Rasullulah Approved?

The friendly freeze is so important to make friendship flourish. In friendship with Allah, we freeze in our day and think about Allah, thank Him, talk to Him. See how salaat asks us to take the friendly freeze from work or school time so we can engage in beautiful conversation, beautiful freeze with Allah.  


In friendship with friends, if we say without thinking, we can hurt our friends. So we practice the friendly freeze. Children get to put hands in a bucket with ice water for as long as they can and then when they cant stand it to remove hands and try and catch a ball. Hand needs time to thaw. Friendship needs that time to think and then talk. Connect to ayat. 


Game 6

Either children make or there is a basket of balls and a basket of pre made paper planes and children play the Ale Mahdi Game. Connect to flying with fast air pressure above and low pressure below. 


Children go home with the Mr. Freeze ice lollies and they go home with their very own personal ice lolly maker.
