In this second unit of study focusing on HPE students will continue to gain experience in 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 K-6 HPE 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 learning strategies for the PE subject matter and integrating the PE curriculum within a K-6 Health Promoting Schools context.
