PHYSICAL EDUCATION – TERM ONE.
Both teacher and students have had an enjoyable time during our first couple of P.E. lessons together.
The new turf is amazing and it provides a safe level playing field for students…..and yes, even the kangaroos love it, not to mention all the wonderful new equipment available for all to use.
This term we will be focusing on the Fundamental Motor Skills of Run, Catch and Throw. Each skill is made up of several components and it is in the breaking down of these components that correct technique is learnt.
The students will become aware of the components through specific individual and partner drills and minor games which will be introduced over the coming weeks to reinforce the skills.
As the semester progresses, students will employ their Building Learning Power ‘muscles’ to enhance their physical learning, e.g. Resilience & Reflection.
I encourage you to find some time while the weather is warm to get outside and play with your children so they can practise what they have learnt at school. It really makes a difference to their developing skill level.
Feedback on your child’s progress will made available to parents via our In Time Reporting system later this term and semester.
I am feeling blessed by the opportunity to teach your child and his/her classmates, to be working with the S.C.C. staff and wider school community. Here’s to all the fun P.E. classes and physical learning that will take place this year.
