Physical Education 

 

During Physical Education we discuss the importance of being and remaining physically active throughout our lives with benefits including:

 

  • Healthier heart and lungs                                                   
  • Stronger bones and muscles                                           
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved memory and learning

 

Each morning classes from across the whole school are active doing Huff and Puff. This is a great way to help keep our bodies healthy, as well as learning some new skills and getting our minds focused and ready to learn.

  

During the year classes from Prep to Grade 2 will primarily focus on learning the Fundamental Motor Skills, which include; catch, kick, run, jump, throw, bounce, leap, dodge and strike.

 

School swimming for grades P-2 will be held in November at Paul Saddler swimming pool in Rowville.  

 

Grades 3-6 will cover a range of sports across the school year which include (but is not limited to) Athletics, Tee-Ball, Basketball, Soccer, AFL, Newcomb/Volleystars, Tennis, Cricket and Rugby and general fitness. 


The Lysterfield Primary School community are encouraged to participate in the Premier’s Active April challenge, which encourages all Victorians to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Primary School aged students should aim for at least 60 minutes.

 

So turn those screens off and get active!
