Designing a sport - writing 2
WALT organise and sequence our ideas.
WALT seek feedback and make changes to our writing.
Your task: Last week, you designed your own sport using the instructions from the youtube video. This week, you are going to design ANY sport you would like using ANY equipment you wish to use! Try to think of equipment which you know we have at school. Once you have designed and written the rules/instructions for playing your sport, you will be making an instructional video to go with your rules.
Use our word bank and word walls in the class to help you with words to use in your writing.
What materials/things do you need for your sport?
Racket, tennis ball, volleyball net,
Where can your game be played?
On the concrete or in the breeze
How many players are needed? How many teams are there?
Split the whole class in half if there is uneven numbers then the extra people have to sit down and wait until someone in the teams is out.
Explain how the players have to cooperate. Explain how the players compete.
By helping each other and taking turns
Explain the rules of your game so that someone else could know how to play it.
If someone keeps hitting the ball and doesn’t share they have to sit out for 5 minutes
If someone hits it too high they have to swap with the other person
What is the goal of your game? How do players win?
You win a point if you hit the ball and the other person misses the ball, then the other team gets a point.
The team with the most points after 1 hour,wins the game.
