In Year 6, the content provides students with the opportunity to refine and further develop skills and strategies to promote a healthy lifestyle including those that focus on minimising and managing conflict, and building self-esteem to support healthy relationships. Students are provided with opportunities to develop skills in accessing reliable and up-to-date information, and continue to explore ways they can manage negative health influences and pursue a healthy lifestyle.
Students refine, consolidate and develop greater proficiency across a range of specialised skills, strategies and tactics in game situations and movement challenges. They focus on improving skill selection and awareness of body position in relation to objects, other people and space, in offensive and defensive contexts.
Students develop and refine interpersonal skills that support them to adopt different roles and responsibilities and perform these with competence and confidence. They are encouraged to further develop leadership roles in team situations, with a focus on sound ethical conduct and the application of a broad knowledge of sport-specific rules.
The Health and Physical Education curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop, enhance and exhibit attitudes and values that promote a healthy lifestyle.
