Physical Education - Term Three
During this term Foundation classes will be focussing on Fundamental Motor Skills of kicking, catching, skipping as well as doing activities related to Australian Rules football and Gymnastics. They will be learning to use their skills in drills as well as small and minor games.
The Year One and Year Two students will be focussing on Fundamental Motor and Movement Skills of catching, throwing and skipping. They will also participate in activities related to Gymnastics. Fundamental Motor and Movement Skills are an important part of the Physical Education program as they expose students to different skills that can be utilised in a range of sporting activities.
Year Three and Four students will be focussing on the sports of Cricket and Gymnastics. The Cricket program is supported by Cricket Victoria and we will have members of the Williamstown Cricket Club and Cricket Victoria staff assisting with some sessions. Students will have the opportunity to develop cricket skills as individuals, in pairs and in small groups. Year 3 and 4 Hoop Time Basketball participants will play on Friday 16th August. Students who are in the District Athletics team will also compete in Term 3 on 26th August and those successful to go onto Divisional Athletics will compete on the 12th September. Year 4 students will also receive a visit early in Term 3 from Western Bulldogs players as part of the Bulldogs in Schools Program.
Our senior students (Year 5 and 6) will be involved in a Tabloid Sports Program, facilitated by staff and the student Sports Leaders each Friday. Like the Year 3 and 4s, Hoop Time Basketball participants will play on Friday 16th August. Our Woolworths T20 Blast Cricket teams will compete on the 4th September and as mentioned above District (26th August) and Divisional (12th September) Athletics competitions are on for successful students. While in the Physical Education classroom students with be working on their skills in the alternative sports, Table Tennis and Frisbee (Frisbee Golf and Ultimate Frisbee). Both sports will require students to improve individual skills as well as utilising their teamwork skills. We will also have a Gymnastics unit running in Term 3.
A number of Sporting Clubs/activities will be happening throughout the term at Recess or Lunch so students keep an eye and ear out for those and don’t forget Footy Week in Week 9!
