This course provides opportunities to learn a range of authentic sports, theme-based games, laboratories, fitness and recreational activities. These activities are negotiated based on class size, student interest and availability of facilities. Students explore movement concepts and strategies through physical activities, promoting participation and performance outcomes. These movement concepts and strategies may include body awareness, movement quality, spatial awareness, relationships, executing movement, creating space, interactions and making decisions.
Students apply their understanding of movement concepts to evaluate aspects of their own or others’ physical activity and reflect on strategies to improve participation and performance. Technology is used to collect, collate and analyse data such as video footage, heart rates, fitness tests and game statistics. Students apply their understanding of movement concepts to evaluate the data and reflect on strategies to improve performance and participation.
