Reflection: My strengths and me

Summary of task

The teacher assisted students to understand what identity is and how identities can be influenced and formed over time. The teacher and students discussed character strengths and achievements through the use of personal experiences, picture books and other media sources, and how these contributed to identity. Connections were made between students’ strengths and how they helped us to learn new things (achievements).

Students were asked to record aspects of their identity by circling things that best described them. They were then asked to identify a range of personal strengths and things they were good at. Students had to explain how their strengths helped them to achieve success in one or more specific activities.

This assessment task relates to the focus area: mental health and wellbeing.

Achievement standard

By the end of Year 2, students describe changes that occur as they grow older. They recognise how strengths and achievements contribute to identities. They identify how emotional responses impact on others’ feelings. They examine messages related to health decisions and describe how to keep themselves and others healthy, safe and physically active. They identify areas where they can be active and how the body reacts to different physical activities.

Students demonstrate positive ways to interact with others. They select and apply strategies to keep themselves healthy and safe and are able to ask for help with tasks or problems. They demonstrate fundamental movement skills in a variety of movement sequences and situations and test alternatives to solve movement challenges. They perform movement sequences that incorporate the elements of movement.
