Written response: Body reactions

Summary of task

Students participated in a combined HPE and Science unit, exploring how their body felt after physical activity. Before going for a run, students checked their heart rate by putting their hand on their chest. After the run, students checked to see if their heart rate was faster. They were asked what other changes to their body they could see or feel.

The students were asked to write a sentence about their body’s reactions to physical activity.

The teacher scribed for students who needed help.

This assessment task relates to the focus area: health benefits of physical activity.

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.
