Health and Physical Education
Years 7 and 8
Video analysis: Athletics
Summary of task
Students participated in a range of athletics events and were provided with instruction on the key performance components of each athletic skill.
Students were asked to identify one skill to perform, evaluate and refine. Students were videoed performing the skill and then viewed the video footage and analysed their performance. They were also provided with feedback from their teacher and peers. Students were then asked to perform and have the skill videoed a second time. Students created a video of their performance and identified the refinements that were made to their skill performance and what they could continue to work on to improve.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: games and sports.
By the end of Year 8, students evaluate strategies and resources to manage changes and transitions and investigate their impact on identities. Students evaluate the impact on wellbeing of relationships and valuing diversity. They analyse factors that influence emotional responses. They investigate strategies and practices that enhance their own, others’ and community health, safety and wellbeing. They investigate and apply movement concepts and select strategies to achieve movement and fitness outcomes. They examine the cultural and historical significance of physical activities and examine how connecting to the environment can enhance health and wellbeing.
Students apply personal and social skills to establish and maintain respectful relationships and promote safety, fair play and inclusivity. They demonstrate skills to make informed decisions, and propose and implement actions that promote their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. Students demonstrate control and accuracy when performing specialised movement sequences and skills. They apply movement concepts and refine strategies to suit different movement situations. They apply the elements of movement to compose and perform movement sequences.
