Prep

During Term 3, students will continue to develop their range of movement through various physical activities to develop basic motor skills. In our Mini Olympics events, students will take part in a wide variety of activities that will see them use all parts of their bodies to compete in each event. Our focus for our Prep students will be trying all events and activities and encouraging students to work to the best of their ability. There will also be a strong focus on teamwork and what it means to be a good team member.

Later in the term, students will specifically focus on various movements, with the skill of kicking being a major focus as we embark on a unit of soccer. Students will play games where they will begin to include their skills in small game situations, whilst continuing to work on developing their coordination skills when maneuvering around other students and objects.
