PE Term Four 2018


During this term Foundation to Year Two classes will be focussing on Fundamental Motor Skills. These skills include football kicking, throwing and catching and ball bouncing.

The Year 3 and 4 students will spend the term learning about Soccer, Tennis and Basketball. The students will learn about the tactics of the game during these lessons.

The Year 5 and 6 students will learn about Sofcrosse, Tennis and Soccer. They will focus on learning the rules, tactics involved and making modifications to cater for all students.

Some of our Year 5 and Year 6 students will be representing the school in the McDonald’s ‘Hoop Time’ Basketball Competition regional finals. If successful, they will go on to compete in the State Basketball finals later in the year.

During week 2, a group of WNPS students will represent the District at the Regional Athletics carnival. If successful, they will go on to compete in the State Athletics Championships, which will be held at the new State Athletics Oval in South Melbourne.

The Year 5 and Year 6 students will participate in an intensive beach program run by the Williamstown Lifesaving Club. The program is an important part of the school’s swimming program as it provides students with water safety skills and techniques they can utilise in everyday life. They will also be participating in an Electives program where they will learn two different sports for a 4 week period. These sports will be run by Clubs from our local community.

It has been a very successful year with many of our students representing the school in various competitions and events. I wish all students competing in any competitions and events throughout the rest of Term 4, all the very best.
