P.E and Sport

Physical Education

Willmott Park Primary School provides students with the skills, confidence and knowledge to become responsible for their own engagement in physical activities for life.

Students in Prep – Year 2 will develop their fundamental movement skills, required for success in sporting activities. Students in their first years at WPPS, will also learn to follow basic rules through small-sided games, to build their knowledge of applying these skills into games.

Students in Year 3 and Year 4 are introduced to common sports, and the knowledge of rules and skills that are required to be successful in these sports. WPPS students get to experience playing in these sports, modified based on skill level to build confidence in all students.

Students in Year 5 and Year 6 begin to learn and implement sporting strategies and tactics into these sports, as well as learning further sports that they may be unfamiliar with. They also learn how some skills and strategies can be used in multiple sports.
