S.E.D.A Cricket Clinic report

On the 7th,14th and 21st of May we had the cricket clinic for two weeks which was run by the S.E.D.A students and we started of by getting split up into multiple groups in my group we had Summah, Simone, Ceili, Brodie, Jake, Max, Lucas (but they called him Scotty) and myself

We practised bowling first by bowling at the wicket and every time you hit the wicket the wicket would come off. There were 2 teams, Max, Lucas, Jake and I were in the first group and the other group was Brodie, Summah, Ceili  and Simone my team got two wickets but as the whistle blew we got the last one but they said it didn’t count, the other team got one.

Then we practised throwing by playing the game survivor where we have to throw the bowl when they say go but they made it harder by saying going, ghost and a few other words. I won once but lost all the rest. We played a total of six games

Then we practised throwing by bouncing the red ball and the tennis ball you had to throw up. I was with Jake again  and we got a few catches but we didn’t get the most because we would drop the catch when we got near five or six.

Last we did batting by hitting the ball off the cone and hitting it between the cones in between the two grey cones it was 5 points if you get in between the yellow and grey cones it was one point. I was with Simone, Summah, Ceili and I. I got 12 points but we didn’t win.

Overall it was really fun and my favourite was the survivor games but the whole thing was really fun and I reckon everyone liked it too.

On the 20th of May, Berwick Lodge Primary School held their annual open night.

All the captains took new families on a tour around our school. Many students were surprised to see how many families came to our school to see their children’s work or for a tour as it was such a cold night.

There were lots or activities around the school including making and tasting dumplings, crack the code in the 5/6 building, art activities in the art room, sport activities in the gym and many more. There was a live radio show running, the students involved in the radio show were Lachlan.W, Lexie B, Kyle M, Leah.H and Simone.S all from 6P. There was also a marvelous performance by the choir.

Overall everyone enjoyed the night, “ Everyone was very friendly and polite” Bailey.S quoted.

Cricket Clinic 2015

On the 7th and 14th of May we had a cricket clinic ran by the students from S.E.D.A.The S.E.D.A. students were well organised and had 4 activities for us to do throughout the clinic. They split our grade into groups, In our group we had Summah, Ceili, Simone, Brodie, Rohan, Lucas, Max and myself.

The first activity was bowling, We were split into two groups. It was Rohan, Lucas, Max and I verse Summah, Ceili Simone and Brodie. The first team to knockout three stumps wins. I started of with hitting a stump right when to opposition got one too. The Max and Lucas got one almost back to back, Lucas’s being on the whistle to move onto the next activity.

The next activity was a game of catch to catch with a small twist, we could only throw to our partner when the instructor said go. Sometimes it was confusing because they said words that sounded like go but they weren’t, so we were out if we through it and they didn’t say go. Soon the whistle blew to go to the next activity.

The next activity was again catch to catch, but with an even bigger twist. One lobbed a ball over whilst the other bounce passed it underneath the lobbed one. At first it was tricky, but over time it became extremely easy. We also had to count how many time we could pass the balls like that without dropping them, Rohan and My record was 23.

The last activity was just a bit of batting practice, we had to hit a ball in between 2 cones, I didn’t really do that most of the time. Brodie got it in every single time.

Overall my favourite activity was the first one, because of the competitiveness. But every activity was just as good as it and I had a great time both weeks.


Why is ICT important?

Why is ICT important?

Contemporary research has shown that ICT can lead to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, acknowledged that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of “KnowledgeComprehension” · “Practical skill” and “Presentation skill” in subject areas such as mathematics, science, and social studies.
