Health and Physical Education
Years 7 and 8
Summary of task
Students participated in a six-week unit of work exploring net/court games including badminton to learn about and develop court movement and specific skills. Students were asked to keep a learning journal using an electronic device and app which could include video and text demonstrating student learning.
Students were asked to insert two videos (one from the beginning of the unit and one from the end) into the student learning journal. Accompanying text was required to explain and analyse any skill improvement that occurred between the two videos.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: games and sports.
By the end of Year 8, students evaluate strategies and resources to manage changes and transitions and investigate their impact on identities. Students evaluate the impact on wellbeing of relationships and valuing diversity. They analyse factors that influence emotional responses. They investigate strategies and practices that enhance their own, others’ and community health, safety and wellbeing. They investigate and apply movement concepts and select strategies to achieve movement and fitness outcomes. They examine the cultural and historical significance of physical activities and examine how connecting to the environment can enhance health and wellbeing.
Students apply personal and social skills to establish and maintain respectful relationships and promote safety, fair play and inclusivity. They demonstrate skills to make informed decisions, and propose and implement actions that promote their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. Students demonstrate control and accuracy when performing specialised movement sequences and skills. They apply movement concepts and refine strategies to suit different movement situations. They apply the elements of movement to compose and perform movement sequences.
