This term in HPE each year group will be focusing on:
PP – simple striking and kicking skills, movement games to develop spacial awareness and faction carnival preparation
Year 1/2: dribbling skills, striking skills and faction carnival event preparation
Year 3/4: AFL Football skills and modified games as well as Athletics
Year 5/6: Winter carnival sports (Netball, AFL Football and Soccer) & Athletics
Here is a quick preview so far:
PP/1’s – Striking and kicking with balloons
Year 1/2’s – Teeball Swing using pool Noodles & Dribbling skill practice
Students performed the teeball strike and then viewed their performance using the BAM Video Delay App. The app played back their performance 4 times at delay intervals of 4, 8 ,12 & 16 seconds after they performed the skill. Instant feedback with what we are doing right and what we can improve upon.
Year 3/4 – AFL Handball skill practice and 3 vs 1 ‘keepyoff’ game
Now we are up and running again with our blogs, it’s time to catch up on some Physical Education news and notes. First up selected Year 3 to 6 runners participated in the 2016 Interschool Cross Country Carnival held at Adam Road Primary School on the 22nd of June. I couldn’t be more proud of all our runners who showed confidence, resilience and persistence to finish a very challenging course. Special mention to Georgia H from Room 14 who placed 3rd (out of 100 runners!) in the Year 5 girls event. In the process she was the very first Treendale PS student to place in the top 3 and receive a medal in our short 3 year history. Fantastic effort Georgia!
Wow what a day Friday the 13th turned out to be! We were lucky to be visited by the Perth Wildcats as well as hold our annual school Lapathon, which is always a great highlight on the school calendar. Thanks to Greg Hire and Rhys Vague for coming along to share their basketball stories, answer some amazing questions and inspire the next generation. Also thanks for taking numerous class photos 🙂
The weather for Lapathon was glorious and it was fantastic to see so many students in the faction colours trying their best to complete as many laps as possible. I think I set a personal best this year by giving out approximately 900 ‘high fives’ and I know all of you were trying your hardest to beat your lap total from last year. Great stuff all around! Stay tuned for the final score to see which faction completed the most laps.

A quick update on with what is happening in Physical Education classes this term.
PP’s – are focusing on Fundamental Movement Skills, consolidating on skills from term 1 with a focus on bouncing, catching and jumping.
Year 1/2’s – are also focusing on FMS skills. This term we are focusing on kicking/punting and adapting them into mini games. Check out some of the kicks below!
Year 3/4’s – are learning all about invasion games. Invasion game examples are hockey, netball, basketball (anything with an offensive and defensive team as well as ball of some kind). We modify these games so students understand the tactics involved such as moving without the ball and finding and creating space. An example is below – the game is called 2 square. The object is to make 5 successful passes without the ball being intercepted by the other team.
Year 5/6’s: Are particpating in Net/Wall games, examples are badminton, tennis, volleyball and table tennis. Again we modify these games by using both high and low nets as well as allowing students to catch and throw before introducing more complex skills, this allows students to understand game tactics sooner. Below is an example, using high and low nets, of students playing mini volleyball.
For the last few weeks students in Year 3/4 have been learning about Net/Wall games in Physical Education classes, coupled with modified tennis games during Senior Sport sessions. This week students practiced setting up an offensive attack, of which the aim was to land the ball in one of two squares located at the back of the court. To be successful you had to move your opponent around with quick decisions and accurate ball placement, a key to successfully playing tennis, volleyball, badminton and similar games. Click below to watch a few videos of this game in action.
As part of tracking cardiovascular fitness levels and fitness goals throughout the year, students from grade 5/6 participated in the beep test. Students partnered up and took turns to be either the ‘runner’ or the ‘recorder’. Here you can see students from Room 16 pushing themselves to record a high score. Click the video below to see a quick preview of the early stages of the test.
We have had a great start to 2016 in all Physical Education classes despite the searing heat of the first few weeks. PP – Year 2 students have been working on a whole range of Fundamental and Locomotor skills, with the forward roll being a favourite. Here is a few shots and a couple videos of students practising their forward roll technique, as well as students from Year 3-6 practising Teeball and Basketball skills.
Using the above video instructional video, students could see and analyse the forward roll via the Hudl Technique app displayed to the big TV screen in the undercover area. Room 9 students below can be seen analysing the finer points.
On Friday November 13th selected Treendale PS students participated in the Jarrah Division Interschool Sports Carnival. The day consisted of 100m, 200m and 400m sprints as well as leaderball, handball and passball relays. The day finished with 4 x 100m relays. The students tried their very best throughout the day with many students placing in the top four in various events. Despite finishing 9th it was great to see the students showing school pride and cheering on their peers. Congratulations to Muzzaffar Anuwar who finished 2nd Runner Up Champion Boy.
