Verbal response: Staying safe
Summary of task
Students identified feelings in day-to-day activities and distinguished between safe and unsafe situations. Students identified and explained warning signs and how to take action to keep themselves safe in their small rural community.
Students were asked to tell the teacher how they could keep themselves safe while at school, down the street and at a local sporting event. This conversation was recorded in writing or as an audio conversation depending on what the student felt comfortable with. The teacher directed the conversation by asking questions that prompted the student to identify how they would know if they were feeling unsafe, and protective behaviours they could use in each setting.
This assessment task relates to the focus areas: safety, relationships and sexuality, and mental health and wellbeing.
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.
