Summary of task
As part of a unit of work on personal identity, students learnt how people, places, personal interests and personal strengths helped shape their identity. Students were introduced to character strengths and each strength was explained.
Students were asked to select three words that had personal meaning to them from a list of character strengths, and draw themselves demonstrating each strength. Students were also asked to reflect on the strengths they had chosen, explaining how they developed those strengths and how these strengths could help them in their lives. Students also reflected on a strength they wanted to improve and explained how this strength could help them in the future.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: relationships and sexuality.
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.
