Terrific Tennis in Year One Blue!
We have been very lucky to participate in a Hand Eye Clinic each Friday. Coach Phil has been teaching us some movements used when playing tennis to help us with our coordination and eye tracking. Eye tracking is an important skill because it helps us to ‘track’ words across a page when we are reading and writing.
We have learnt three tennis shots – backhand, forehand and volley and have discovered some future tennis players among us!
We have had a terrific time learning new skills, having fun and enjoying the fresh air!
You might even see some of us at a future Australian Open…in a few years of course!
Here in Year One this week we had a fantastic celebration …
our 100th Day of School!
We have been eagerly awaiting this big day and when it finally arrived we had a really wonderful time, completing activities all about the number 100!
We also dressed up as some very cool and groovy 100 year olds!
We have become really confident with working with numbers to 100 – we can now count to 100 in different ways and we are getting very good at writing these numbers correctly.
We can also use objects to model numbers to 100 too – hmmnnn, we’re so awesome!
Some of the other activities we participated in involved thinking about what we might do with $100. We made a tower with 100 plastic cups, we ordered 100 objects in a way that’s easy to count and we discovered what we could build with 100 pieces of Lego!
We had a really fun day…but we were just a teensy weeny bit tired by the end of it! 🙂
Bye for now!
In the next few weeks staff will be inserviced regarding placing posts on the school website.
We will let you know when these are up and running so stay tuned!
