Grade 5/6 PE

Term 3

FITNESS

The students in Grade 5/6 have been focusing on the unit of “fitness” and understanding the benefits of being physically fit and healthy.  The students completed the beep test and 20m sprint test as pre assessment and will complete these tests again in Term 4 as a post assessment. They students completed exercise journals to help them understand how much physical activity they are currently completing and we discussed ways we can increase this activity. The students also developed new exercises to add to our fitness circuit we completed at the start of each lesson.
