Health and Physical Education
Years 3 and 4
Poster: Stay safe
Summary of task
As part of a unit of work on safety, students learnt about what the concept of safety means in the classroom, school and local community.
Students were asked to design a poster illustrating an important aspect of safety in each setting (classroom, school and local community). They were then asked to write about the safety reasons for one of these rules and how the rule was decided.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: safety.
By the end of Year 4, students recognise strategies for managing change. They identify influences that strengthen identities. They investigate how emotional responses vary and understand how to interact positively with others in a variety of situations. Students interpret health messages and discuss the influences on healthy and safe choices. They understand the benefits of being healthy and physically active. They describe the connections they have to their community and identify local resources to support their health, wellbeing, safety and physical activity.
Students apply strategies for working cooperatively and apply rules fairly. They use decision-making and problem-solving skills to select and demonstrate strategies that help them stay safe, healthy and active. They refine fundamental movement skills and apply movement concepts and strategies in a variety of physical activities and to solve movement challenges. They create and perform movement sequences using fundamental movement skills and the elements of movement.
