Sport Report

Apollo Sports Report 2019

This is the new way we will do sports reports this year. It is not much different to past years but we need to streamline the process.

The aim is to keep the student voice but reduce the unnecessary information.

Sports captains will introduce the group of reporters. They will say who each team played and introduce the first reporter.

All students will show their reports to the sports captains on Mondays at 12.45, room 12/13.

Captains will check to see that the reporter has followed the correct format.

 Here is a sample report. Say your name, say the score, mention one or two players.


Hello I am _______


I played basketball for the rockets. The score was


22 to 3 in our favour.


___name_______ played a determined game and shot 15 points.

___name_______ was great at encouraging the team during the game.



Don’t say!!!:

  • Good morning to parents teachers and students.
  • Scores ended up to be;
  • I was chosen to be captain;
  • The date or team we played;
  • Sports awards will be handed out at a later date.

Do say:

  • Who played well and why you think that.
  • Say each word clearly –I played SOFTBALL for the Comets.
  • The score (or say we won or lost by a large margin.)

Other points:

PRACTICE your speech!!!!!


Show your speech to the sports captains on Mondays.


We are looking at how e-Learning student leaders might play a role as well. Eg. They might put a photo of the team up on the screen as the captain speaks. It might be a good visual for the younger students. We would all need to take a photo of our teams before the first game.

Biography Writing

Now that you are close to completing your research of your chosen leader it is time to begin to write their biography.

Using the sample below as a guide you can begin writing using all of your research to support you.


  • The introduction introduces your topic
  • A biography is chronological
  • You need to include many details of your person’s life to explain how they worked towards their significant achievements
  • Your conclusion explains what your leader is doing now OR what they are remembered for
  • Make your writing interesting (include adjectives)
  • Remember to proof-read and edit your writing for correct spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • Quality Work!

Bio Sample

Holiday Homework

As part of our term four Writing curriculum we will need all the students to collect some items from their holidays to use to assist their writing.

Items can include:

Digital and/or printed photos, movie tickets, holiday souvenirs, pamphlets, brochures etc

Best wishes to all the students in 5S and I hope they all have a happy and safe holiday break.
