This session looks to share how you can incorporate your school values as a focus in your PE program to develop personal and social responsibility through positive play (Safety, inclusion, fair play and effort). We focus on the CARE values of Collaboration, Achievement, Responsibility and Empathy as designed by the leadership team at Mernda Park Primary School and how we have adapted it to PE and Specialist Areas for whole student learning.

Fundamental Movement Skills are the building blocks of physical activity but how did each skill get on that list? Who decides what FMS are important for your students to learn, where do we go to get that information and why is there such a fuss around FMS. This session is about opening up discussions around FMS and debunking some of the myths.

A thematic approach for Physical Education enables the teaching and learning of game concepts and strategies that are transferrable between sports. This approach has piqued the interest of many Health and Physical Education teachers through their engagement with the Victorian Curriculum F–10: HPE and the notion of “transfer”. The Australian game-based approach of Game Sense has the capacity to provide an ideal instructional practice for teachers to facilitate a thematic curriculum and the transfer of movement concepts and strategies, using the organisational feature of the four game categories: invasion; net, court and wall; striking and fielding, target. This workshop will introduce the Principles of play including Movement concepts and strategies across the four game categories.

Part 1. Relevant to many situations, 'failing to prepare, is preparing to fail' and planning your PE program content is no different! This hands on, collaborative session is twofold. This first session (B03) will unpack the foundations of planning (influences of why and how we plan) which will enhance your confidence to know how to map out the units in your scope and sequence. The second session (C03) will allow you to engage with others to plan a unit sequence, aligned to content descriptions and achievement standards with specific learning outcomes. You'll leave feeling accomplished that you've already done the work ready to implement back at school! Note: We recommend continuing this session with C03 but advocate this is still a great standalone session.

How do you purposefully and efficiently assess students? How can technology assist you in collecting authentic and objective evidence? When developing our curriculum programs, we decide what we want to assess. But have you considered how you are going to collect your evidence throughout the year that is meaningful for the student and manageable for you? This session will share ways you can utilize technology to provide feedback and assessment in an objective and purposeful way.

Although scholars have advocated for students to be considered central to the educational process for decades the voice of the primary students remains absent (Iannucci & Parker, 2021). This leaves us with calls issued for more understanding of what (if any) student voice practices are occurring in PE at the primary (K–6) level (Iannucci & Parker, 2021; Parker et al., 2018). Therefore, our research aims to explore teachers’ understanding of and experience enacting student voice practices in primary PE. Utilising these findings, we will co-develop an understanding of student voice practices with ACHPER participants.

We often say "Eyes on the prize" but can we create some more fun and exciting FMS teaching cues to get the message across to our students in an age-appropriate way. This session will explore how we can think outside the box with teaching FMS skills by using 'student cues' rather than a more technical 'teacher cue'. We will explore a range of activities during this session that will get you to think creatively to develop activities and teaching cues to ultimately reinforce FMS learning concepts in a fun and exciting way.

When examining various models of practice in Physical Education teachers are often left with the impression that they need to adhere to a model so that its fidelity is maintained. For the practitioner, however, they are often seeking a more pragmatic approach that will engage learners and enhance student achievement. This session will provide a brief overview of these models and then provide time for attendees to discuss and experience how these models can be best blended to enhance student learning. This session will be especially useful for those wanting to renew their PE planning and the way in which they structure units of work and lessons.

A Game Sense approach in physical education places the game at the heart of the session. It encourages the player to develop skills in a realistic context, to become more tactically aware, to make better decisions and to have more fun. Applying the Game Sense approach, this practical workshop will identify generic tactical problems and solutions within net/wall sports through focusing on a variety of tennis games and play practices. These games will form the foundation for enhanced game understanding and performance in other sports in the net/wall category and broaden your teaching repertoire of net/wall games.
