Only 5 less sports than the Olympics but still they’re amazing. Can you guess what it is? Yes! It’s the Paralympics. The Year Five students have written a letter to the amazing and talented Australian Paralympians and are hoping for a letter to come in the mail soon. We researched an Australian Paralympian then we wrote a letter wishing them good luck and letting them know how we found them interesting and inspiring.
If students wanted a reply letter we asked some questions and some students asked about their injury or about their choice for the sport that they play. We really enjoyed writing the letter and learning about what some people can do after suffering horrific injuries. Some people also found out that some athletes live in Heidelberg. The teachers enjoyed giving the Year Fives a fun activity about the amazing people who live in our country.
