Content

This is an elective in Health and Physical Education that sets out to help students critically examine the historical and contemporary factors that have influenced the development of the Primary School physical education curriculum. Through both classes and practicals, students will explore the origins of the physical education curriculum and examine the relationship between fitness, health, sport and physical education as it has variously been represented in the curriculum. Students will be involved in practical sessions where they engage in and analyse curriculum content and examine teaching strategies commonly employed by specialist and non-specialist teachers. A key criteria for good teaching is the ability to create and maintain a safe and supportive learning environment which can present some challenges to the teachers, particularly when working outdoors.
