Health and PE students from Jabiru

This term Year 10 students Kia Gowler and Mitchell Tickner have been running Physical Education classes with Grade 2/3 and Grade 7/8 Jabiru Area School (JAS) students.

All classes were run in the JAS Multi-purpose Area and the Grade 2/3 students have enjoyed the following physical activities:

  • Games such as Warriors and Dragons, Duck Duck Goose, Pac man and Stuck in the Mud
  • Practising fundamental movement skills such as: running, skipping, hopping, jumping, galloping, side stepping
  • Practising ball handling skills (catching, throwing, passing) using a range of different balls: Touch balls, Tennis balls, Volleyballs, and Basketballs
  • Team sports: Hockey,  Soccer, Kickball, Basketball, Golden Child
  • Running and Fitness Activities such as: chasey, star jumps, bull rush
  • Learning about hydration.

Our favourite part was when the students welcome us, we get a ‘rock star’ style entry! Our least favourite thing to do is equipment handling, and setting up prior to class!

The Grade 7/8 students do a different program. They always warm up effectively first. Often they play Dragons and Warriors as a warm up.  They are active playing and learning about mainly team sports as students are older. The main sports they learnt were basketball, hockey, and soccer. We had a few problems. Some students don’t join in, sometimes even with encouragement they don’t join in.

Our favourite part was getting to participate in games/sports with the students! We love to play too.  Kia’s least favourite part was that sometimes her siblings were rude! But not all the time.
