During term 2, the students will be participating in a variety of activities that include continuous obstacle courses, basic animal yoga poses, creating different alphabet shapes using their bodies and a modified gymnastics program. The activities are aimed at developing their spatial awareness, balance, flexibility, co-ordination, strength and fundamental motor skills.

The children will also be learning about directional language such as, forwards, backwards, through, over, under, along, left and right, whilst participating in the continuous obstacle courses.

Activities and games that the students take part in will be set up so they can participate independently, with a partner, or in a small group. This assists to promote the sharing of equipment and cooperation with others.

Foundation

Within the first few weeks of term 3, the students will be focusing on running, with an emphasis on the starting position for sprinting. The activities they will be participating in include beanbag relays and games involving running races.

The children will also be learning about vertical and horizontal jumping. They will be taking part in activities that involve challenging themselves to jump as high and as far as they can.   

There will also be a focus on over arm throwing and catching. The students will be participating in a variety of minor games and activities that encourages them learn and practise the skills associated with throwing and catching.

Later in the term, we will be focusing on building fitness through using skipping ropes. The children will progress through a variety of skills starting with jumping over stationary ropes and then developing their rhythm and timing using when rotating their own rope.

If any parents are available to help during the times that the Foundation PE sessions are running, that would be much appreciated.
