Year 5 Syllabus

Year Level Description

In Year 5, the content provides students with the opportunity to focus on the influence of emotional responses on relationships and to develop skills and strategies to manage changing relationships occurring at key transition points in their lives. They learn about ways they can take action to promote safe and healthy lifestyle practices in a range of contexts. They also focus on the importance of preventive measures to enhance their own health and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Students develop and refine greater proficiency across a range of specialised movement skills, strategies and tactics. They focus on improving awareness of body position in relation to objects, other people and space, and assess how this can help them to successfully achieve movement outcomes or goals.

Students examine the different roles and responsibilities associated with physical activity participation, and continue to apply ethical behaviour that is consistent with promoting fair play and championing appropriate sporting conduct.

The Health and Physical Education curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop, enhance and exhibit attitudes and values that promote a healthy lifestyle.

They identify the effects on movement skills when effort, space, time, objects and people are manipulated. Students demonstrate ethical behaviour and use this to be effective when taking on the role of player, coach or referee/umpire.
