A Visitor to Room 11

The Thursday before our Easter break, we had a visitor from  Havelock North High School.  Ben and Libby came along and talked to us about Ben's violin.  Ben also asked us if we played any instruments. Lots of people had played the piano. Some played the recorder and ukelele. One person's brother played the tuba.
It was very interesting. 

Ben played some music for us on his violin.

We got to look at his old violin.
It had 4 strings and you hold it under your chin.

You can pluck the strings with your fingers or use the horse hair bow.

We were very careful with it.

We loved the music that Ben played, especially the dance music.

Sally from Sport Hawkes Bay March 2016

 In March Sally from Sport Hawkes Bay came along to teach us how to STRIKE a ball so that we could play t-ball, baseball and softball. We had lots of fun and because it was raining, we had to do it in the hall - BOY!! Lots of noise!

Warming up.

Getting ready to play Hospital Tag.

2 people have to tag the rest of the
children with a noodle.

Grab the spot where you were tagged.

Learning to hit the ball correctly.

Look at the ball so that you hit it.


Listening. Aiming. SWING!!

One of the stations where you had to step and catch the ball.

Aiming for the hoop.

The skipping station.

 We were quite worn out by the end of the session. We can't wait for the next one in April. Thanks Sally.
