Pre Primary

Semester 2 Fun in Pre Primary. 

A big part of Pre Primary Physical Education is the acquisition of fundamental movement skills. These are the building blocks from which all other movement stems from. Activities incorporating balance, body management, locomotion, object manipulation, hand-eye skills, foot-eye skills, and climbing are all explored in a mix of structured and free play.  Students are encouraged to try new movements and to find out what they can do with a variety of equipment.

Our year ones have also been developing their social skills during PE classes. The importance of taking turns, lining up, sharing equipment, playing safely, listening to others and asking questions is emphasised.

The biggest event in PE for our Pre Primary students is the Faction Carnival. We prepare for most of term 3 by learning how to play our part in relay races, by knowing where to be and what to do. Students learn about running races, cheering and what it means to be a good sport.

One of the favourite games we like to play is ‘Tales’. In this game students practice chasing and dodging while sticking to the rules of the game. This game develops students’ evasion skills and spatial awareness.

Check out what our clever Pre Primary students have been up to in Semester 1:

In Pre Primary lessons we explore all the ways our body can move and how we can manipulate objects for activities and games. A big focus is on using multiple body parts to perform an action, such as stepping when we pass and throw a large ball. We also experiment with different types of balls to see which ones bounce best, and what different balls can be used for.
