Finnish Baseball Practice Session

Baseball is a great sport when it comes to improving focus, hand-eye-coordination and mental sharpness. Last week English Class first and second graders, together with the English School kindergarten children, practiced the skills of throwing, catching, pitching and batting the ball.

Swinging a bat at a pitch or catching a ball enhances hand-eye coordination. This has several benefits outside of sports because hand-eye coordination is crucial in many fine motor skills, including reading and writing. That being said, playing baseball can have a beneficial impact on other things at school.

The fine warm, sunny weather we experienced last week made this session a favourite with teachers and children alike!
