This term the senior team has been learning about cycle safety.  The children learned how to use hand signal to turn left, right and stop.  They also taught how to go round a roundabout safely.  We had fun going on the road ride.

On the 13 of September the school had our Olympic Day.  The classes were split into 5 continents and worked together to create flag and chants.  First we had the opening ceremony where classes were able to present their flag. We had 3 legged race, potato and spoon race, hurdles, sprints and gumboot throw.  The teachers also had a throw off then we had the closing ceremony where each continent were presented with medals.  Children had great fun and had thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Ball Skills

Wow!!! What a fantastic skills the children have displayed! We are learning to throw the ball using the throwing fundamental skills.  We have to think about how we should be standing, holding the ball and throwing the ball.  It's great to see children improving on their skills each week and hitting the target more often.    



Standing facing sideways with leg slightly open wide. Aiming arm out, holding the tennis ball loosely and making sure that it is not sitting on the palm of our hand. 
   


Twisting our hips fast and hard to the front and bringing our throwing arm and throw the tennis ball and aiming it at the hoop.

Room 3 working and helping hands.



We created patterns on the hands, we coloured them using bright colours.  We then use describing words to describe the children in room 3.  We are a group of children that enjoy working collaboratively, looking after each other and helping each other. We also believe that when we work together we can achieve great things.
