Physical Education

The Health and Physical Education program at Fyans Park Primary School is an inclusive, collaborative and core unit for all students. It is aligned to the Victorian Curriculum and focuses on all students participating in varied physical activity and enhancing their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. The program is delivered one session per week to all students Foundation to Year 6.

Students are immersed in a broad range of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport that is inclusive, challenging and enjoyable. They learn the importance of how their body moves, correct techniques for warming up and specific development of fundamental movement to assist them in completing tasks confidently and competently.

Throughout the year, students in Foundation to Year 2 work through a range of fundamental movement activities and games. They develop spatial awareness, teamwork skills, specific ball skills and game sense understanding. All students participate in a whole school Cross Country in Term 1 and a celebration ‘Foundation – Year 2 Sports Day’ in Term 4. This is a fantastic celebration of all of the hard work the students have put in throughout the year and are focused around the core athletics activities – running, hurdles, shot put, discus and long jump.

In Years 3 to 6, students build on their fundamental movement skills, applying these to new and varied sports, activities and challenges. All students participate in a Cross Country and ‘Year 3-6 House Athletics Day’ in Term 1. These are wonderful community events that build confidence, teamwork and participation for all students.

Bike Education is provided in Year 3/4 in preparation for students attending Maldon Blue Light camp. Summer and Winter Lightning Premiership sports are attended by all students in Year 5/6 with a focus on teamwork, sportsmanship and encouragement.
