Health & Physical Education

Health & Physical Education

The Physical Education program at Black Hill Primary School aims to inspire students to be involved in physical activities that develop both individual and team skills, as well as promote healthy attitudes and habits.

A key learning area in Physical Education is the development, understanding and application of the Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) including run, leap, throw, catch, kick, strike, punt, vertical jump, dodge and bounce.

In the early years these FMS are broken down into stages, and drills are used to teach correct technique, in the later years these skills are refined through application under pressure in sport specific games and activities.
