This term is all about the outdoors. For me as a teacher I am delivering the final stages of learning for the year for each grand level. This is exciting as I get the chance to see everything tie together. Children will be learning stage 2 or 3 of various fms in the junior grades and in our senior grades children will be challenge with various game sense skills to better their experiences in a game situation. Again all information will be documented using IDOCEO app which has completly changed how I teach.
Sport wise; it is championship term with regional and state finals in athletics, basketball, cricket, lacrosse and rugby.
Professional wise; this term will see for the first time Barwon sth west region teachers come together and develop a yearly curriculum plan that is somewhat consistent across all schools. Our aim is create a model where teachers are engaged in bettering themselves professionally but at the same time develop a curriculum that supports teachers at needs basis. A strong, rich goal and assessment based curriculum will assist all teachers as the move children through a series of skill, fitness, team and risk based activities.
11 weeks of PE left for the year still plenty of work to be done.
Good luck to everyone
