The students aim to develop an understanding of the natural and built areas of their school and local community that enable them to participate in sports and other individual/group activities. Students consider how their sporting interests may be affected and/or influenced as they grow and change over time. They begin to understand and accept that each person has different interests, skills and abilities.
Year 3-4: Champions then, Champions now
Students participate in a class discussion then they read information on two indigenous players: Graham "Polly" Farmer and Michael Long, and offer their opinion on whether each player was a champion of the game based on a set of structured questions.
Students research two players of their choice. They must also investigate a chance of the rules, equipment and uniforms.
Year 5-6: The True Australian Game
