Landers Returns!

Well, just for an afternoon.

Shane landers and Lauren Shaw from Sacred Heart CPS in Thornlie visited Queenies today with their yr 6 league tag teams to play a round of ‘friendlies’ against our yr 6 teams. Although the day was won by the visitors, both teams enjoyed the competition and the skills on display were very impressive.

Term 3 PE

Once again we begin the term with a flurry of activity keeping our students busy, energised and entertained.

So far we have had:

Little Athletics clinics, Edu-dance, swimming lessons, before school lap running, after-school table tennis clinics, Faction Cross Country Carnival and the Littlies’ Lap-a-thon.

In addition to this, our classes have begun their athletics (‘races and relays’ for kindy to year 2) units in PE. Hopefully the weather will be kind in the coming weeks as we prepare for the Faction Athletics Carnival days early next term. Students will prepare for a variety of events, all the while learning important lessons such as:

K/PP

  • Experience new activities and discover fun ways to play
  • Learn to move their bodies in a variety of ways
  • Make improvements to running technique.
  • Control their speed and breathing in longer races
  • Understand the body’s changes and what they mean.
  • Participate in races and relays fairly.

  • Make improvements to running technique, and use tips and strategies when in races and relays.
  • Learn to control pace and breathing for increased distances.
  • Understand the body’s changes and what they mean.
  • Learn the rules and procedures for races and relays

3/4

  • Discover their own strengths and challenges.
  • Develop a warm up habit.
  • Understand how technology is used for coaching and reflection
  • Develop sound technique.
  • Develop an understanding of what PBs are and how they are used.
  • Learn rules and safety procedures for athletics events

5/6

  • Understand why people choose/don’t choose athletics as a pass time.
  • Learn how routine makes technique automatic.
  • Learn the importance of technique.
  • Learn to move competently and improve.
  • Learn goal setting and how monitoring can assist.
  • Understand what is involved when officiating peer’s athletic events

We look forward to a productive and rewarding term as together, all Queenies community members enjoy being creative, pursuing excellence, developing resilience and showing respect.

Flying Flynn!

After wins in Athletics and Swimming in recent times, Flynn made it three in a row with a win in today’s Faction Cross Country Carnival.

There were spirited performances all afternoon as our students pushed themselves to exhaustion. It was wonderful for our students to be supported so well by their classmates, other students and by the many parents and grand parents who created such a positive atmosphere. With a focus on resilience in PE, our students are developing a sense of determination and self motivation with each event they participate in at Queenies.

Final scores:

Flynn: 252, Magdlen 244, Luemmen 240, Canning 228

Race winners were:

Yr3: Charissa Kheng and Brodie Davey

Yr 4: Natasha Hodgkinson and Matthew Radojkovich

Yr 5: Alicia Herbert and Sebastian Kelleher

Yr 6: Caitlin Hodgkinson and Killian Jordan-Keane

Luemmen won the ‘Bonus Points’ shield, largely due to a great turn out at our lap-running sessions before school.

Skipping, Running and Ping Pong:

Jump Rope for Heart Money collection

Our ‘Jump Off’ day was a lot of fun, and I congratulate the students and teachers for getting involved. It was great  to see a bunch of parents there for the lower primary session also. Head on over to the ‘Queenies Riverton’ facebook page for a collection of photos from the event.

I would very much like the assistance from a parent or two to set up a table before school to collect Jump Rope For Heart money. Perhaps you can ‘rope in’ a friend to help you. If you can help please email bridgeman.ross@qoa.wa.edu.au. Thanks.
Lap Running continues
