Prior Learning

Students have participated in a variety of physical activities. They have learnt a number of fundamental movement skills, such as the vertical jump, sprint run, hop and skip, and they have refined them through practice over time. The teacher has demonstrated the skills of kicking and dodging, and provided feedback on correct techniques to the students. Students have learnt the basic techniques involved and have practised and refined the skills, focusing on one component at a time.
