Physical Education

All students at Aberfoyle Hub School in 2015 are involved in at least one lesson per week of specialised Physical Education. Each lesson has a fitness component, a skills component and a games component.

In PE lessons, students develop their physical fitness via a range of activities and games, and can regularly be seen puffing and sweating during PE lessons. Participation is maximised at every opportunity, as students are actively involved in fun, challenging and engaging fitness activities.

All students R-7 will be exposed to a range of sports, where they will learn the skills and techniques required to play the sport at a competent level in the school yard, at home with their friends and family or at a local sporting club. Some of the sports that students will be involved in this year include Cricket, Athletics, Basketball, Softball, Netball, a range of racket sports, Volleyball, Gymnastics and Dance.

In the early years, there is a major focus on hand eye coordination, movement and body awareness. Learners have great opportunities to practise their catching, throwing, kicking and hitting skills in a range of settings.

Finally, within lessons a game sense approach is undertaken, where students are involved in modified games simulations that improves their skills, and also teaches the tactics that the sports require.

Lessons are designed to be enjoyable, to be challenging and interesting for all students. Students have showed they are receptive to and are enjoying PE lessons so far this year. It has been pleasing to see the skill level of all students greatly improve, as they persist and are willing to try their best.
