Physical Education Assessment

In Term 3 we looked at physical education as an area of in-depth assessment to see how we are achieving. It does not come as a surprise to me that our children are generally achieving very well in the area of physical education.  We have a great programme in place at our school, and this is certainly paying dividends in our children’s locomotor, co-ordination and sports skills development.  In summary 90%+ of the school achieved at or above the specific learning outcomes derived from the New Zealand Curriculum.  The assessment criteria in concise terms were;
1.     Movement and the language of movement
2.     Safety in sports
3.     Demonstrating movement on bars and different types of movement
4.     Varying body position and transferring skills into other sports and physical activity

The full assessment is available from me if you would like to look at it.  You’re most welcome.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
