Year 8 Physical Education
In junior Physical Education we have two main focus points. Firstly improving basic fundamental movement skills such as locomotion, throwing, catching, striking and balance. These form the basis of all sports and physical activity and are vital for allowing us to successfully sustain physical activity throughout our lifetime. Secondly we focus on interpersonal skills and being able to work with others. These skills are important as they can be transferred into many areas of our life. We work through these skills on a three tiered program focusing on discovery, development and consolidating.
In Year 8 Physical Education we explore these skills through the following topics -
Term One - Swimming, athletics, and fitness.
Term Two - Theme of throwing and catching (large/small)
Term Three - Theme of striking with and without an implement (cricket, volleyball, football)
Term Four - Stability and locomotion
