Prep Level

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

The lessons that the Physical Education staff have programed 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.

Year 1 & 2

The students, through a range of movement and physical activities, will continue to develop and expand on their basic motor skills. They will continue developing the skills required to play in small and larger groups and also develop the ability to adapt their movement amongst and changing a moving environment, as the students themselves and objects around them move. 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 programed for the children in Level 1 and 2 are designed to allow students to develop and expand on the skills learnt in previous years.

Students 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 in place previous learnings around movement and coordination to learn the fundamental techniques of each event.
