Physical Education

Developing a love for movement through P.E.

During Physical Education this term students will participate in a variety of activities, games and challenges which is will expand on their experiences and further enhance their learning as they continue to develop a love for movement and understand it’s important towards their health, wellbeing, fitness and connection to lifelong activities.

Whilst we focus on developing the whole child (physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively), each year level experience the following this term:

Foundation - Locomotor movements (walking, crawling, balancing, climbing, jumping, hopping, skipping, running etc), play based learning with a connection to PE, inquiry into catching as a life skill, throwing various objects and striking objects with their body and small bats/racquets (e.g. striking balloons and larger soft balls).

Year One and Two - Locomotor movements (walking, crawling, balancing, climbing, jumping, hopping, skipping, running etc), movement sequences (e.g. running into jumping), play based learning with a connection to PE, inquiry into catching as a life skill, throwing various objects and striking objects with their body and small bats/racquets (e.g. striking various ball types).

physedYear Three and Four – Take part in Target Games and Ground, Net and Wall Games. Within these units the students explore different techniques and practise and apply game based movement concepts and strategies. The students continue to understand movement through movement sequences like propelling or striking objects with different levels of force. The students learn through movement by adopting inclusive practises and working on 21st century skills in an environment focused on student agency.

Year Five and Six - Take part in Target Games and Ground, Net and Wall Games. Within these units the students practice specialised movement skills and apply them in different movement situations. The students continue to understand movement by manipulating movement sequences for accuracy and control by propelling different objects with appropriate technique, speed and force. The students learn through movement by participating positivity in groups and teams by encouraging others and negotiating roles and responsibilities. They continue to work on 21st century skills in an environment focused on student agency.

Our program also has a connection to STEAM and the outdoors as we wish to support the learner profile of each student, so they continue to develop many other skills and make the world a better place.

Yours in movement,
