CLICK on the link below to see ‘Play is the Way’ in action. ‘Play is the Way’ is a social skill building program integrated into fun, fitness based games. The game in the video is a very simple game called “The Name Game”. The aim is to run around the circle and say everyone’s names as quickly as you can. This was far more challenging than it appears! It is a great game for the beginning of the year as we get to know each other and build our class team.
Hi and thanks for logging on to our class blog page. During the year, I encourage you to come back here regularly to look at some of our learning and leave a comment. Your participation in the blog is valuable feedback to our class. If you ‘Subscribe by email’ you will be notified whenever a new post is added (about once a week/fortnight).
This year is going to be a fantastic year if we all work together. We will all make mistakes (myself included) but with the right attitude we will see some amazing learning occur. To start with I thought students could reply to this blog post by saying what they hope to learn this year and parents could reply by saying what they remember from Year 3 or 4. When students reply, please just use first names to help protect our identities.
I’ll start. I remember from Year 3 my teacher was Ms Anderson and we did ‘Investigation’ time. In Year 4 my teacher was Mr James (yes, the same Mr James from Craigburn!) and everyday we did NRG (energy) which was fitness.
I’m looking forward to reading your responses!
