This term in Physical Education at Albert Park we be covering a range of sports, games and fundamental motor skills.
Our grade 3-6 students will be learning and participating in a range of invasion games focusing on Basketball and Netball in preparation for our Hoop time and Netball gala days. Students will develop a range of skills while improving their game understanding, rules, tactics and teamwork skills.
Our prep classes will be focusing on the development of the fundamental motor skills striking and kicking, while increasing our understanding of games, teamwork, rules and fair play. We will also be enjoying some coaching clinics from Softball Victoria throughout the early weeks of the term.
Meanwhile our grade 1-2 students will be covering units in soccer and basketball developing skills such as bouncing, throwing, catching, kicking, while increasing our understanding of invasion games and how we can work as a team.
