Years 5 and 6


Written response: Identity

Summary of task

Students participated in a five-week unit of work about personal wellbeing and relationships, with a focus on belonging, resilience and personal and cultural identities. Physical activity challenges were used to generate discussion about linking feelings and relationships to wellbeing.

Students were asked to explain the positive influence of people in their life including their impact on the student's current interests. They were also asked to consider how place impacts on identity and why identities change.

This assessment task relates to the focus area: relationships and sexuality.

Achievement standard

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.
