What’s happening in Physical Education this term?  A note from Mrs Hudson

In Physical Education this term, students from Prep to Year 2 will be learning a number of gymnastics movements. They will be using their strength, flexibility, agility and balance to perform rotations, landings, swings, springs and statics. Through SOLO Taxonomy students will be monitoring their own individual learning in the hope of extending their skills to a higher level. Towards the end of term, students will be performing in groups of 3 or 4, demonstrating the skills they have learnt throughout the gymnastics unit.

 

Students from Year 3 to Year 6 will be learning the requirements of a forehand strike during our unit on tennis. They will also be revising the 6 dominate movement patterns of gymnastics which are: locomotion, statics, swings, springs, landings and rotations. Through SOLO Taxonomy students will be monitoring their own individual learning in the hope of extending their skills and knowledge throughout the unit. Students will be asked to perform a group floor routine at the end of the unit to demonstrate the skills they have learnt as well as evaluate other student performances.

Chè’s Story

My name is Chè Buckley and I am 12 years old. I have been personally affected by cancer by seeing my 'GG' lose her battle with cancer and more recently, my Uma fight to survive it. I have had friends, members of my school community and their families all deeply affected by Cancer. I have learnt that 1 in 3 Victorians will hear the words "you have cancer" by age 75. I want to do something to help reduce this number. I am going to ride from Wangaratta to Bairnsdale (312km) over Mount Hotham. It will take me four days starting on October 20th arriving at my school Gippsland Grammar in Bairnsdale on Monday October 23rd. If you would like to help me raise money to donate to the Cancer Council in an effort to improve research into Cancer, please visit my fundraising page.  Your donation will go towards Cancer Council Victoria's innovative work in cancer research, prevention programs and support services. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
