In term 3 the students in year 3/4 learnt about net/ wall games and sports. The students began the unit playing a variety of games that included focusing on offence and defence, court positioning, special awareness, reaction time and footwork.
The students then learnt about the sport of badminton. For many, this was a new sport with very little previous exposure. The students developed their skills over a period of 5 weeks that included serving, shot selection and becoming familiar with the equipment to play the sport.
Students in Year 3/4 were exposed to target games and sports. During this term students were able to work with their peers to create their own target game. Students also had the opportunity to develop their skills and knowlege of Lawn Bowls with Wayne from the Essendon Lawn Bowls club.
