Term 1:

For our youngest members of the school, term 1 is all about establishing routines, learning and applying new language and getting used to the type of activities we do at sport time. Students are introduced to the ‘play area’ with it’s boundaries and colours. We learn about personal space and the how space is required for safe movement. We learn to move in a variety of ways such as walking, jogging, running, jogging backwards, crawling hopping, jumping and more. We play with hoops, bean bags and balls as we explore how much fun it is to use our bodies in creative ways.
