Melville Intermediate - Handball in New Zealand
NZ Handball Demo for Denmark from myles webb on Vimeo.
One of the sites that we've really enjoyed visiting recently has been Vonslid School Blog in Denmark, it caused us to research Denmark because we discovered that we didn't know very much about it as a country. One of our students, Lana created a slideshow about the comparison between Denmark and New Zealand. She thought that she found that Soccer was the national sport of Denmark, apparently its Handball! This brought much mirth to Room Eight as Handball is a game played by some students at interval and lunch break, but is for fun only. We've actually researched Handball the sport, and its of course quite different from New Zealand Handball - this video was filmed by Mitchell and Kris and demonstrates what most New Zealanders think 'Handball' is.
