Teacher Notes: By Jeanie Axton
This time of the year is a good opportunity to construct sporty shape poems. In SA we have our first AFL round this weekend and with my limited knowledge of rugby it looks like it’s started in NSW and Queensland.
Both the AFL and NRL offer many online resources for teachers.
Find below a link to the AFL Teaching and Learning Resources and a screen shot with suggestions for English. Also a link and screen shot to a NRL site re a Well Being unit for schools.
Dont forget to give girls who play footy and rugby a plug. Women’s football in the AFL is in its second season.
