Year 7 - Activ8

SUBJECT DESCRIPTION

Activ8 is our name for Year 7 Health & Physical Education at Matthew Flinders.  The course provides students with an excellent opportunity to participate in a large range of exciting sports and activities including softball, soccer, dance, hockey, aquatics, and gymnastics. The program will help students develop new skills and improve the skills they already have.

 

KEY FOCUS QUESTIONS

Alongside our PE classes our Health lessons will ask the question “How can we save the Health of Gen Z?” As a member of GenZ the Year 7 student will discover the things that might impact their health, such as poor diet, smoking or a sedentary lifestyle and attempt to educate others about the dangers.

 

Health and PE provide students with ‘Learning for Life’. The skills and knowledge gained will benefit their wellbeing throughout their life. Some students may even be able to influence those around them to undertake some healthy changes.

 

MAIN ASSESSMENT TASKS

In PE students will be assessed through their participation over a range of activities. The major assessment tasks will be a gymnastics performance and a soccer skills assessment.

In Health the assessment for semester 1 will be an ‘e-portfolio’ which is a digital record of topics undertaken during the semester. Semester 2 involves students in Inquiry Based learning answering the question posed above: “How can we save the Health of Gen Z?” Students will work individually to investigate a ‘problem’ of their choice and will present solutions to an audience of their peers.

 

RESOURCES AND EQUIPMENT

Students are required to wear correct PE uniform for practical classes.

Please bring along your enthusiasm and a smile!

In Health class students will need a BYOD plus a project book for note taking.
