Physical Education and Sport – Term 3

The Sport and Physical Education programs have been very busy since the last website update.

Students in Prep, Year One and Two have explored units of work on dance, gymnastics and fundamental motor skills. During our dance unit, students practiced moving to the beat in individual, partnered and small group dances. Throughout gymnastics, students discovered the many different gymnastic support positions as well as methods of safely rolling, jumping and landing. When focusing on fundamental motor skills, students have performed soccer kicks, drop punts, underarm throws, overarm throws, basketball bounces, two-handed strikes and two-handed catches in discipline based sequences and associated these skills into minor games.
