Health and Physical Education
Years 5 and 6
Summary of task
Students participated in a six-week unit on gymnastics in which they learnt a range of movements and concepts related to space and composition of movement sequences.
Students were asked to create a gymnastic sequence using a range of identified floor skills and connecting movements. The routines were then performed in front of the class and videoed.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: rhythmic and expressive movement activities.
By the end of Year 6, students investigate developmental changes and transitions. They explain the influence of people and places on identities. They recognise the influence of emotions on behaviours and discuss factors that influence how people interact. They describe their own and others’ contributions to health, physical activity, safety and wellbeing. They describe the key features of health-related fitness and the significance of physical activity participation to health and wellbeing. They examine how physical activity, celebrating diversity and connecting to the environment support community wellbeing and cultural understanding.
Students demonstrate fair play and skills to work collaboratively. They access and interpret health information and apply decision-making and problem-solving skills to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They perform specialised movement skills and sequences and propose and combine movement concepts and strategies to achieve movement outcomes and solve movement challenges. They apply the elements of movement when composing and performing movement sequences.
