Health and physical education
Physical education is a core component of the primary school curriculum. The primary years are perhaps the most significant period for motor development in children, a time during which basic movement competencies are developed and which offers the first opportunity for embedding physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Early 2020 Term 1 break update
As you are aware learning at Sunshine has seen some forced changes due to COVID-19. We are all aware of the importance of physical activity and in particular the age old message of healthy bodies creating healthy minds. I just wanted to touch base and encourage our learners to stay active.
Although forced change is daunting it is sometimes a catalyst for experiencing new things and this may include taking part in some physical activities that are new for you. As I write this we are still able to go outside and be active in with family members and walk, run, bike ride, scooter and skateboard whilst always ensuring we are social distancing and being responsible about our interactions. Things may change and we can still be active indoors. I know of some families who have discovered some great free YouTube fitness sessions.
I look forward to seeing you back at school soon. Stay safe.
