Conjunctions Writing

Description: In writing with Elly we have been learning to use conjunctions more in our 
writing here is a piece of writing that I have written to show conjunction. The ones that
are highlighted yellow are the conjunctions I have used in my writing

As I look out the foggy window, I see santa claus run across a snowy thick roof
puff! Flakes of snow (shaped as snowflakes) drift and swirl around santa, he rises up
and lands on the floor of an old cottage, but the first thing santa spots is the mince pie and a nice big glass of orange juice. Santa makes such a loud gobbling noise that a little girl around about 6, skips into the room. She has orange hair and a few freckles placed neatly on her cheeks.

She spies santa dressed up in a red and white uniform. SANTA! She yells, she freezes then faints. Luckily santa has a present for her that is a doctor's kit. he quickly pours some fright medicine in her mouth and she awakes immediately.

Catch Me If You Can- Defense

WALT: Defensive skills and movements

Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the things I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.

Success Criteria:

Body Movement

  • Weight on balls of feet
  • Feet shoulder width apart
  • Knees flexed
  • Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
  • Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
  • Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
  • Arms within confines of body
  • Take feet to ball
  • Land with a SBP
  • Body angled to see player and ball
  • Anticipate pass and player movement
Restrictive Marking
  • Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
  • stay close to the attacking player
  • Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
  • Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
  • 0.9m from ball carrier

Evaluation: I think that I need to work on Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass.
One thing I think I did really well was pivoting out to the ball and away. I think I also need to work on landing in a stable position.

FeedBack and FeedForward: I think you did really well at having your knees bent so you can get that ball. Next time you could work on your SBP ( Stable body postion) because you are stepping when you have got the ball. Georgia
