Year 1 Australian Curriculum English Plan

Our Year 1 teacher, Robyn Blekkenhorst, has developed a sequence of lessons in relation to the literary text Winners Never Quit by Mia Hamm. The sequence of lessons addresses aspects of the Australian Curriculum English content descriptions across the three strands of Language, Literature and Literacy.
In Winners Never Quit, the character Mia loves playing soccer. That is, until she has trouble scoring a goal when her team is about to lose. Before she can lose, she quits. Fed up with her attitude, Mia's brothers and sisters will not let her play with them anymore. Will Mia learn that being a team player is more important than winning or losing the game?

This wonderful and motivating story is a mini autobiography of one of the top female soccer players from the USA, Mia Hamm, who helped the United States win a gold medal in soccer in the 1996 Olympics.
