The cold weather is starting to set in but students are still active and busy in PE. Just a reminder to wear their sports uniform on their PE day;Thursday = Prep/1, 1/2, 4/5, 5/6, Friday = 3/4. But also to dress for the appropriate weather. We are often outside for our lessons as we do not always have the opportunity to use the MPR.
The Prep/1/2’s have been hard at work learning how to kick with increasing accuracy and power. They are learning how to follow rules and identify fair play in the games and activities we play.
In Yr 3/4 the students are learning about Invasion games. They are exploring the concepts of attack and defence and how to use space in game situations. They are applying basic rules and scoring systems to small sided games to overcome challenges in the game. In our Cross country unit students also explored different types of fitness and staying healthy.
In Yr 5/6 students are preparing for the Winter Gala by exploring Invasions games such as Netball, Soccer and AFL. The SEDA soccer group are back this year to take the students for 4 weeks of skills and games activities. In our Cross Country unit students also started to examine the benefits of being fit and healthy and how this affects our wellbeing.
