HPE

​Health and Physical Education

 

Prep and Year 1 - Mrs Anika Campbell

In term one, prep and year one students are concentrating on two areas. In health, we are learning about being safe. We are investigating different ways to ensure we stay safe around roads, when riding our bikes and when we go out in the sun.

In physical education, we are developing our ball skills. We will be learning how to bounce by ourselves, bounce to a partner and also how to throw and catch.

We have had a great start to the year, with all of the preps quickly learning Mrs's Campbell's rules and routines. The year ones have remembered from last year and have hit the ground running!
