Summary of task

Students listened to a story about children growing and changing and discussed the physical characteristics and different roles of characters in the book. Using a range of different images of people, students were asked to place them in order of age and justify their choices.

Students were asked to draw themselves at different life stages from baby to teenager. In their drawings, students were required to depict the physical changes that had occurred or would occur in the future. Students were also asked to describe changes in their relationships and social expectations.

Students engaged in the task independently. The teacher scribed for students unable to write independently.

This assessment task relates to the focus area: relationships and sexuality.

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.
