PDHPE 2: Active Healthy Primary Schools (EDUP3001)


In this second unit of study focusing on Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE), students will continue to gain experience in planning, teaching and reflecting upon the four mandatory Physical Education strands in the current NSW K-6 PDHPE Syllabus: Active Lifestyle, Gymnastics, Dance and Games and Sport. In light of national changes, students will also be introduced to the emerging F-6 Health and Physical Education Australian Curriculum. Emphasis will be placed on participating in a variety of gymnastics, dance activities and fundamental movement skills that will enable students to develop teaching confidence and competence in these areas. Particular attention will be given to developing the pedagogical knowledge, understanding and skills to plan and implement appropriate teaching and learning strategies for the PE subject matter and integrating the PE curriculum within a K-6 Health Promoting Schools context.
