Week 6: Sport and learning in NZ

Last week was a big week for New Zealand sport. Irene van Dyke retired, the All Blacks played their first international for 2014, a NZ Olympic rowing champion retired and Steven Adams finished his first season in the NBA. Later this week the Football World Cup will start in Brazil and there is still the Commonwealth Games to take place in Glasgow, Scotland.

Playing or learning a sport can teach us a lot of lessons for life and not just the skills involved in playing the game. Watch the video below to help you answer the questions for this weeks Kidsedchatnz topic.




1. Who are some of your favourite sports teams/people? Why do you like them?
2. Who do you think helped them become the great players/teams they are today.
3. What role does a coach play in a team?
4. What roles do the players have in a team?
5. What would happen if the team and coach didn't work together?

6. How does sport at school help you with your learning in other subjects?
7 Thinking about yourself at school, who are the key people in your learning team?
8 What role does your teacher/other staff play in your education?
9. What role do you play in your education?
10. Do mums and dads play a role in your education? If so, how?
11. What can you do next to help you improve in your schoolwork?


I hope you enjoy the topic and we'll see you all on Thursday at 2pm.
