Sport and PE Report

Junior Athletics Carnival

On Monday 6th May, all students from Foundation to Year 2 took part in the Junior Athletics Carnival on the bottom oval. Students participated in a variety of running, jumping and throwing events, including the egg and spoon race, vortex throw and long jump. Throughout the afternoon, students were earning house points by trying their best at each event.

 

Thank-you to all of the parents who came along to support, the students in 6DT for assisting our younger students and the wonderful junior school teachers for looking after each event. It truly was a fantastic afternoon with so many students having great fun!

This fortnight in PE.....

This term has started off with a bang, with students their sporting skills by practicing the following:

- Foundation - Underarm Throwing and Catching

- Year 1/2s - Underarm Throwing, Overarm Throwing and Catching

- Year 3 - 6s - Invasion Games (the strategy and skills required to play sports where you can invade anywhere with the playing areas - e.g. soccer, European handball, netball, etc.)

 

Please make a big effort to practice as many of these skills outside of school, as this will help your child develop their fundamental movement skills and game sense knowledge.
