Term 2 Curriculum Overview


During Term 2, students will continue to develop their range of movement through various physical activities to develop their basic motor skills. Students will specifically focus on various movements including balancing, dodging and weaving, changing direction, and hopping. Students will play games where they will begin to include these skills in small game situations, whilst continuing to work on developing their coordination skills when manoeuvring around other students and objects.

Later in the term, lessons will shift to have a focus on the basic stages of throwing and catching, introducing students to various objects and equipment that they will use to develop their throwing and catching technique. The lessons that the Physical Education staff have programmed for the children in the Prep level are designed to allow students to develop skills and awareness that give them a base for future learning. 

Years 1 & 2

The students, through a range of movement and physical activities, will continue to develop and expand on their basic motor skills, specifically with a focus around bouncing and kicking a ball. They will continue developing the skills required to play in small and larger groups and will also develop the ability to adapt their movement in a changing environment. They will be exposed to rules, procedures and how to follow instructions so they can effectively participate in Physical Education activities. The lessons the Physical Education staff have programmed for the children in Years 1 and 2 are designed to allow students to develop and expand on the skills learnt in previous years.

Years 3 – 6

Our Athletics unit will focus on all aspects of track and field (relays, high, long and triple jump, shot put, discus, sprints, hurdles, and long distance), where they will put into place previous learnings around movement and coordination to learn the fundamental techniques of each event. Student results will be recorded during Physical Education lessons, with the District squad being selected from these results.
