Today was the first of four Fridays that students from our local University will be doing some PE lessons with our kids.
The pre-service teachers are involved in a mentoring program and there is a 1st year and a 4th year pre-service teacher working together to mentor and deliver program for our students.
So today we did a warm up, established some rules and played some great games which all involved catching.
One game was called cleaning your room. There are two teams and you have to use under arm throws only to get as many bean bags out of your space and into the other space. They needed to work as a team, be strategic and use skill to get the beanbags from their space to the other.
The task was about throwing the balloon in the air and catching it before it got to the floor and when the whistle blew they had to swap balloons and then keep going.
We cannot wait until next Friday - thanks Mick and Mitch!
