Physical Education (PE)

Term 2 Overview 2021

Prep

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 maneuvering 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 also develop the ability to adapt their movement amongst 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 Grades 1 and 2 are designed to allow students to develop and expand on the skills learnt in previous years.

Years 3 & 4

The students will practice and use complex manipulative and locomotion skills that they will apply in sport specific settings. They will explore basic tactics such as offence and defence. The students will begin to work as a group to set and achieve goals in both cooperative and competitive settings. Term 2 will see the students focus on the sports of AFL football and Athletics. AFL will see the students practice marking and kicking the ball as well as the specific skill of handballing. During the unit, students will explore how to work as a team to move the ball down the field/court offensively, whilst also learning how to best position themselves to defend. The students will also be encouraged to learn umpiring and officiating skills of the sport. Our Athletics will see students 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. Student results will be recorded during Physical Education lessons, with the District squad being selected from these results. Students will also showcase their learnings at the House Athletics Day in Term 3.

 

 

 

Years 5 & 6

The students will continue to show improvement in more complex movements, sequences, and games. They will group these skills together so they can effectively participate in modified sports. Through a supportive environment during a small number of AFL clinics, the students will provide positive feedback, both as a team and individually, which will further support skill acquisition. They will also start to discuss and demonstrate more complex strategic thinking that is required to be an effective team member.

Students will also participate in a unit on Athletics. 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. Student results will be recorded during Physical Education lessons, with the District squad being selected from these results. Students will also showcase their learnings at the House Athletics Day in Term 3.
