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.

Today, Tracey came to Te wao nui o Tane and had a talk with the children on how to be a buddy to the children in Room 9. She showed the children how to handle the wheelchair and the expectations of being a room 9 buddy.
