Try A New Sport Week 2012
Primary “Try a New Sport Week” provides many risk taking
opportunities for students in Key Stage 2
The first week of team saw our year 3 to 6 PE. curriculum put on hold with our second annual “ Try a new Sport Week’’ taking the stage. The students certainly rose to the challenge and enjoyed making their own choices of what new sports or activities to learn.
The Primary P.E. and Swim teams were called into action to offer some alternative sports and activities and some interesting talents emerged! Learning opportunities offered during the week included Yoga, Thai Dance, Kwik Cricket, Uni Hoc, Cyber Mats, Aussie Rules, Netball, Kabaddi, Takraw, Badminton, Frizbee Golf, Swedish Long ball, Bouldering, Flippa Ball and Ultimate Frizbee. Phew!
Many children really were risk taking to the max and tired something that had never even heard of before, which was very rewarding to see.
Some comments from the students included;
Year 4 – I like kicking the ball and being able to score 6 or 1. It was quite tricky!
Year 5 – It was a fast game with a lot of running. I enjoyed passing but it was a hard skill to master.
Year 4 – It is fun because I like running around and it is also very challenging trying to hold your breath at the same time.
Year 5 – It was hard to hold my breath and to keep away from the other team.
Year 5 – Badminton was really good and I enjoyed hitting the shuttle cock high over the net and playing with friends.
Year 4 – It was a fun but also hard as the racket was small and the net high. I enjoyed playing against my friends too.
Year 3 – We loved it, yeah!
Year 6 – The dance game on the Cyber Mats was awesome!
Year 5 – It was fun with Games that I had not played before.
Year 4 – It is fun to tap all the direction with my feet and I enjoyed the wiggle game the best.
Year 5 – I enjoyed batting against “Robbie the train” as he bowled so fast!
Year 5 –Takraw was fun and I enjoyed kicking the ball cover the net.
Year 3 – I found it hard but like using the inside of my foot and enjoyed playing the game.
Year 3 – I enjoyed dancing with my hands and being a Thai person I liked doing it!
A huge thank you to all of the Primary Swim and PE teams for coming forward with such a wide range of exciting new learning experience to try. Also to all of the students who leapt at the chance to make exciting choices and try something new!
