Welcome to PE @ MHPS with Mr Yasunaga
Term 1 –
Students begin the school year with collecting data for 4 skills sets: overarm throwing, hand-eye coordination, rebound catching and running. These activities will be conducted again later in the year to track progress.
Kanga Cricket is the first Sport the students explore. This is an age-appropriate modified game of cricket. The main focuses are two hand strike and overarm throw.
Following Kanga Cricket, students will familiarise themselves with dodgeball. Students rely on skills of footwork, catching and throwing with a ‘sling’ action.
Students start the year recording results for 4 skill sets: overarm throwing, catching, basketball shots and running. Later in the year they will do the same activities to record successes.
Tee-ball/cricket are the first sports student's practice. Other than learning the correct throwing and catching techniques, they learn to play the game.
Grade 5/6 students also begin interschool sport competition. Meadow Heights PS play other school Friday mornings against other schools in the Greenvale area. The Summer sports offered for our students are volleyball, cricket, tee-ball and basketball.
Those students who were not involved in Interschool, get involved in a Basketball clinic run by SEDA (Sporting VCAL Secondary School).
