Welcome to PE @ MHPS with Mr Yasunaga
Students are eased into Physical Education setting beginning with Perceptual Motion Program giving students the opportunity to consolidate and refine their gross motor and locomotive movements (running, walking, balancing and hand/foot coordination), as well as learn and practice fundamental motor skills (skipping, galloping, leaping, rolling, etc). It is also important to get familiar with learning outside the classroom setting, a large indoor space (Gymnasium) and the outdoor spaces (Courts). Spatial awareness and distancing from each other is another focus area during the beginning of the year.
Students revisit fundamental motor skills (skipping, galloping, leaping, hopping etc.) with the inclusion of object control skills (bouncing, catching, throwing and kicking). These skills are also introduced in practice drills like scenario and at times gameplay application.
Students now use their knowledge of Fundamental motor skills and apply them in sporting like gameplay. They are now introduced to different types of Sporting games; Invasion or territory, Target, Net/Court or Strike and fielding sports.
These students have the first chance to represent their school in sports competition with Cross Country.
Gymnastics will also be a unit of work students get involved with during this semester.
Students develop further or consolidate their skills in the different types of Sporting games; Invasion or territory, Target, Net/Court or Strike and fielding sports. They get the opportunity to participate in school sport competition. Interschool School Sports Competition try outs are held for summer sports. Meadow Heights PS play against other schools in the Greenvale area. The Summer sports offered for our students are Volleyball, Cricket, Teeball and Basketball.
