Health and Physical Education
Years 5 and 6
Demonstration and verbal response: Net games
Summary of task
Over eight lessons, students were engaged in a net games unit of work. The focus was on manipulating and controlling a ball/object using another piece of equipment. Modified tennis equipment (low/short nets, short-handled rackets), lowered badminton nets and four table tennis tables were operating at the same time to ensure all students were participating and able to be successful umpiring or playing.
Students were asked to demonstrate their learning and answer a range of questions about what they learnt throughout the term. They could choose to focus on one particular sport in their answers, or to show how they could transfer their learning to different sports.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: games and sports.
By the end of Year 6, students investigate developmental changes and transitions. They explain the influence of people and places on identities. They recognise the influence of emotions on behaviours and discuss factors that influence how people interact. They describe their own and others’ contributions to health, physical activity, safety and wellbeing. They describe the key features of health-related fitness and the significance of physical activity participation to health and wellbeing. They examine how physical activity, celebrating diversity and connecting to the environment support community wellbeing and cultural understanding.
Students demonstrate fair play and skills to work collaboratively. They access and interpret health information and apply decision-making and problem-solving skills to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They perform specialised movement skills and sequences and propose and combine movement concepts and strategies to achieve movement outcomes and solve movement challenges. They apply the elements of movement when composing and performing movement sequences.
