At Makybe Rise Primary School we recognise that regular physical activity plays an important part in a healthy lifestyle. All students participate in physical education classes in programs that differ across the year levels.
Junior PE Program
The Junior PE Program focuses on teaching and developing the Fundamental Movement Skills of the students. Fundamental Movement Skills are the movement patterns that involve different body parts. They are the foundation movements or precursor patterns to the more specialised, complex skills used in play, games, sports, dance, gymnastics, outdoor education and physical recreation.
These skills may include:
- Body Management Skills – Rolling, Stopping, Bending, Twisting, Landing, Stretching, Climbing, Static and Dynamic Balancing, Turning
- Loco-motor Skills – Crawling, Running, Galloping, Walking, Hopping, Skipping, Dodging
- Object Control Skills – Throwing, Catching, Striking, Bouncing, Dribbling, Kicking
Senior PE Program
The Senior PE Program is inclusive of a variety of sports, providing opportunities for students to learn and develop sport specific skills that are underpinned by their Fundamental Movement Skills. There is a strong focus on tactics and teamwork, which helps to promote the development of ‘thinking players’. Our Year 5/6 students participate in a Sports Education Program (SEPEP), where students establish teams and understand roles such as coach, umpires, scorers and media managers, with an emphasis on a student-centred approach.
We want all of our students to enjoy the fun and excitement of participating in sport. We hope that students develop an on-going, positive attitude towards being healthy and active and that they carry this with them for the rest of their lives.
Goal Setting in PE
At the beginning of each term, all students at Makybe Rise set a goal to help improve performance, motivation and task completion. The Year 1 and 2 students work collaboratively towards a class goal and the Year 3-6 students set an individual goal using the SMART framework.
What does an organised PE student have?
Hat* – Every student should bring a wide brimmed hat to school every day as they are a requirement for playing outside during recess and lunch. The hats are also required during PE lessons. If students don’t have a hat they may not be able to participate in some aspects of the PE lesson.
*Hats should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Drink Bottle – All students should bring a drink bottle with them to their PE lesson. This saves a lot of time when we’re working on the courts or oval and ensures students stay well hydrated, especially in the summer months.
Footwear – It is very important that students have a fully closed in shoe that fits snugly around their foot. Sandals and boots can be problematic and potentially dangerous to wear during sport activities.
Sporting Schools Program
The Sporting Schools Program is an Australian Government initiative that aims to provide a range of sporting programs that will increase your child’s interest and participation in sport. The program is designed to create stronger links between children and local sporting, encouraging a lifelong love of sport. At Makybe we offer after-school sports to Year 1-4 students who don’t participate in sport outside of school. We want all of our students to have the opportunity to engage in high quality sports programs and connect children to sport within our Baldivis community.
Makybe Rise Sporting Events
Makybe Rise students participate in a range of sports events over the course of the school year. Our two main school events are the Tribes Cross Country Carnival and Tribes Athletics Carnivals. We also hold a Fun Run with the assistance of the P &C for all K-6 students.
