Physical Skills in Primary
In November, students in the younger years in Primary gave a multi-skills presentation to their parents, to demonstrate the physical skills that they have developed in PE. Multi-skills are fun activities designed to enhance children’s core physical abilities. They focus on three main areas: agility, balance and coordination.
The activities on the day included an obstacle course, an agility run, and ball skills. Switch, in which participants grasp and place a ball at speed against an opponent, develops lateral movement in a fun context, while shooting basketball hoops from increasing distances improves hand-eye coordination, balance and control. Splat, always a hot favourite, really drew a crowd, as the students worked with racquets to receive and stop a ball, before using a forehand ground shot to return it.
