PE & Sport Overview - Term 4 2017

 

Prep

During our final term the Preps will be developing basic Tennis skills including handling the racquet, feeding to a target, and underarm hitting from a feed. We will then move onto Gymnastics, with a focus on balancing, moving, rolling, jumping and landing on the floor and using small equipment.


Grade 1 & 2’s

The students will be developing further developing their basic Tennis skills. Some of the skills we will focus on will be developing skills using the racquet, feeding to a target, learning a ready position, and forehand and backhand shot.  

Gymnastics will be our next activity, with a focus on balancing, moving and linking movements on our own and with a partner.  The students will also develop skills in rolling, jumping and landing safely, on the floor using small equipment.


Grade 3 & 4’s

More complex tennis skills will be the focus in the first part of the term. We will focus on our ability to perform forehand and backhand shots, as well as develop consistency when hitting from a partners’ feed working towards a rally.  All of the their learnt tennis skills will then be put into practise within short games.

During the second half of the term, Gymnastics will be taught, with a focus on balancing, moving and linking movements on our own and with a partner.  We will also develop our rolling, jumping and safe landing and dismounts. The students will  practice techniques and develop control during jumps and rolls and landing over different apparatus.


Grade 5 & 6’s

Our senior students will be developing their leadership skills and what roles they can take on in leadership in small groups. They will plan, develop and coach a game to the rest of the class with a selection of different equipment. For this to happen, they will create a written plan, clear rules and demonstration of their game.

Gymnastics will be our next activity, with a focus on balancing, moving and linking movements on our own/with a partner. This will incorporate mirroring, timing levels and transitions.  We will also develop our rolling, jumping and landing and dismounts.  These techniques and skills will be developed using control during jumps and rolls and landing over different apparatus.  We will also develop our ability to observe others and give feedback on our performances.

 

Thanks and we are looking forward to a wonderful term 4 in PE and Sport!
