Physical Education, Term 4 – December

The Sport and Physical Education programs at Greenvale PS have been sprinting through Term Four.

Students in Prep, Year One and Two have explored units of work on sport specific skills. Within this unit, students have analysed the sports of tee-ball, AFL, basketball and tennis in order to identify and practice the skills necessary for success in them. This has reinforced and associated learning from motor skill lessons throughout the year. From this, students have then participated in fundamental motor skill circuits and locomotive games which contain changes in speed and direction. When engaging in Physical Education lessons, students have been entrenched in an environment which promotes the values of respect, responsibility, honesty and sportsmanship.

Students in Year Three and Four have participated in circuit training fitness sessions and explored the major sports of tennis, gymnastics, and cricket. Students have analysed the skills, tactics and knowledge necessary to participate in these sports and have actively explored this through minor games and skill based activities.

Student in Years Five and Six continued with their fitness testing in at the end of each term, in order to monitor / improve their fitness and hopefully achieve their personal goals. Students also explored the major sports of
