Chris's Club

This week, the students only got one English Corner from Mr. Brown. We headed outside to continue playing basketball, learning how to dribble correctly, control the ball, pass to one another and avoid the big puddles. The students were split into teams and they had to keep track of their points in English. We also went over the terms basketball hoop, net, backboard, rim and phrases such as pass the ball, dribble the ball and shoot the ball. 




Orlando's Club

At Monday 14th,Grade 1 had a lot of fun. We played a game played in British playgrounds “throw the garbage”, where two groups of four had to line up. One Football was in the middle of the court, whilst both teams had to run and grab the ball, and toss it over the other teams head. Each team had to work together to work out who was the fastest person in the group, who was the best at deflecting the ball, by jumping. Class 101 worked together best, being the quickest to attain the ball and throw over both other teams heads. At the start all teams had a problem with charging at the ball, but realized that only the fastest should run towards the ball. 

At Wednesday 16th,it was a special English corner where Mr Orlando read a fascinating story to Grade 1. As the students gathered closely to listen to Mr Orlando, the story was told of a very hungry Caterpillar. As Mr Orlando enthusiastically read through the story; acting out scenes, Grade 1 were enchanted by the story. After we finished the exciting story, we began to play a game of Fruit Salad. There were two lines of students; with each student being given a Fruit or Salad name, i.e. Orange and Banana. When we called the Fruit or Salad name out i.e “Orange” all the Oranges had to stand up and find a different seat, but they were not allowed to sit back in the seat they had before. One person would be left out and have to call the next name out, running to get a seat for themselves!


Mark's Club

Another week, another raining English corner. 

Monday's weather was nice enough after a weekend of rain to return to our usual spot in the playground, but Wednesday saw the return of rain. This meant we once again we had to retreat to our under cover area to play. 

The students for the most part have become quite capable at playing handball and some are able to challenge the teacher in one vs one competition. Alarmingly though, there tends to be a generally low ability on the side of the students to watch the ball bounce at high speed, as the majority tend to frequently dispute the rulings of the teacher/judge in regards to who won and who was 'out'. Teacher Mark is considering assigning weekend homework of watching slow motion videos that are gradually sped up depicting a tennis ball bouncing, as well as implementing mandatory eyesight tests before each English corner, in which the lower the score, the less credibility that student will have in objecting to rulings during that club meeting. (This is of course a joke for anyone who doesn't understand Australian sarcasm).


Amy's Club

In this week’s Art English Corner we completed the backgrounds of our hand paintings with different mediums such as pencils, pastels and felt tips. The completed pictures were beautiful as each child managed to portray the plant/animal they intended to hand print, set against an appropriate environment. 

We then moved on to a project inspired by St Patrick’s Day, an Irish holiday celebrated by most of the Western world on 17 March. The students learnt about the famous Irish foliage: the shamrock. This symbol is particularly prevalent at St Paddy’s celebrations which will extend to the weekend in Ireland. Green is the theme so we made little green shamrocks that will be glitzed and constructed into a wreath on Monday and entitled “Happy St Patrick’s Day!”


Laura’s Club

This week the students learned some really beautiful movements. We practiced running, jumping and pointing out feet. We also concentrated on making sure we are ready to begin, and are aware of the other dancers. 

The students were really tested this week, as they now have more to remember, however, they are doing such a great job and many of them are taking responsibility for their part in the dance.The students are having so much fun creating this beautiful dance, and are learning more about the different ways their body can move. Their confidence is building and they are having lots of fun. 


David’ s Club

On this week's English Corner students were introduced to the concept of "RONDO' or "PIGGIE IN THE MIDDLE". 

Its an exercise used by the greatest football teams in the world. It is useful to improve technique (control and short pass) and speed of reaction and thought in the game. 

It consists of a big circle formed by players who need to pass the ball to each other while avoiding 2 players in the middle, who need to try and touch the ball.  It presents kids with real game football situations and makes them aware of how important it is in football to keep the ball possession 

We will perform this exercise every day since it is fun and basic for any football team 


Daniel’ s Club

For English corner this week we decided it would be best to continue with the idea of playing playground games until the weather improves. 

I tried showing them the game, Marco Polo. After a bit of a tricky initial learning period, they eventually got the hang of it.  A game that is good fun for all and is at a different pace than the normal fast paced games they usually enjoy
