Thanks to Sporting School Funding Sheidow Park has been lucky enough to have a Badminton coach for our year 3-6 classes on Monday mornings and
Wednesday all day for 4 weeks of this term2.
Students have learnt to Chasse (the term for Badminton footwork), lift the shuttle, overhead clear, overhead smash, serve and a net rollover to prepare them for some fun mini games they play during PE lessons.
To warm us up and learn the skills we have play games like clean up my backyard, first to the shuttle, rob the nest, noughts and crosses, serve at the cone and many more.
Students have shown great persistence when attempting to hit the shuttle as this can be a difficult skill to learn and our hand eye coordination and the knowledge that being ready to move our feet has been very important.
Great work to all the students as they have improved immensely and a
HUGE thanks to Nick our coach.
