The Giants were very lucky to have a local artist called Nicole White come and run an art workshop to sharpen our skills, understand what it is like to be an artist and make a fantastic collage of Martin Luther King Jr. Here are the Giants in action looking at different tones of colour and doing different sketching exercises.
This term, the year 2s will be developing the basic skills involved in net and wall games. They will develop their understanding of the principles of net and wall games such as using the ready position to defend their space and sending the ball away from an opponent to maximise their chances of scoring. They will learn to play games honestly, abiding by the rules and showing respect towards their opponents and teammates. Lesson 1 was all about racket familiarisation.
