Demonstration: Shadow dodge
Summary of task
The class was exposed to and practised a range of fundamental movement skills through a variety of games.
The teacher projected a film of moving objects on a wall. The students were asked to demonstrate running, walking, dodging/ducking and jumping in different directions to avoid their shadow colliding with the moving objects. At various points, the class was stopped to discuss how they managed to avoid their shadow colliding with the moving objects.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: fundamental movement skills.
By the end of Foundation Year, students recognise how they are growing and changing. They identify and describe the different emotions people experience. They identify actions that help them be healthy, safe and physically active. They identify different settings where they can be active and demonstrate how to move and play safely. They describe how their body responds to movement.
Students use personal and social skills when working with others in a range of activities. They demonstrate, with guidance, practices and protective behaviours to keep themselves safe and healthy in different activities. They perform fundamental movement skills and solve movement challenges.
