Physical Education

The Physical Education program at Kingswood Primary School provides a range of experiences for students.

P-2 students perform basic motor skills and movement patterns, with or without equipment, in a range of environments. The focus is on skills such as running, jumping, skipping, catching, throwing, kicking, balancing and are introduced to more complex skills such as leaping, dodging, overarm throw, dribbling, bouncing and striking.

Year 3-6 students continue to develop motor skills and apply these to sport specific situations. The students explore basic game tactics such as; introducing the concepts of attack and defence, following the rules of the game, and describing the roles of various positions. They begin to work with others to set and achieve goals in both cooperative and competitive game settings.

Every year all students have the opportunity to attend a swimming program. Throughout the year students also participate in carnivals for cross country, athletics and swimming.

In addition, there are gala days in soccer, basketball, cricket, football and rugby. Year 5 and 6 students take part in inter-school sport on Friday mornings. Coaching clinics are delivered by outside providers at different times of the year and there is an extensive extra-curricular sport program on offer every term.
