At Waubra Primary School we aim to provide your child with the motor skills necessary for participation in physical activity. This includes promoting maximum participation, as well as understanding and appreciating the role that physical activity plays in the health of the individual and ultimately the community.
At the junior level, Foundation - 2, emphasis is placed on the learning of basic movement patterns, which we build upon as your child progresses through their primary school years. These include basic movement patterns, which we build upon as your child progresses through their primary school years. These include activities that will develop catching, throwing, jumping, kicking, punting, dodging and striking. Minor and social games are also included at this level to encourage sharing and cooperation with others.
During grades 3-4 children are taught a broad range of transitional lead up motor skills required for modified team games. These skills are practised individually and then incorporated into game situations. As your child enters grade 5-6 these skills are refined and game tactics are also emphasised.
Each class participates in 1 hour of physical education a week.
