Prep Level

Term 4 will see students continue to develop their range of movement through a range of physical activities to develop their basic motor and ball handling skills. Students will participate in activities where they will learn to bounce and kick as well as continuing to practice their throwing and catching. As this is happening, students will continue building 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

This term, students will continue to specifically focus on improving their ball handling skills and techniques as they focus on bouncing, tracking and kicking a ball. Students will learn how to track a ball travelling along the ground and continue to learn how to position themselves in a position where they will best catch or trap a moving ball. 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. Rules specific to sports will be introduced and students will be reminded to follow instructions at all times to best help the flow of the games played. 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.
