MICHAEL PROCTOR, 16778072, PDHPE SEMESTER 1HWarm-Up Game: Musical HoopsEarly Stage 1, KindergartenSet Up/Equipment:
If possible, instruct students in setting up the following:-25 hoops scattered about a field, court or even large indoor area-If required, use cones to mark a large area around the scattered hoops-CD player/Radio etc. with music-A pile of at least 25 sashes
Students jog/walk around the area marked with cones whilst music is playing. The teacher randomly turns the music off, atwhich point, students run to the centre of a hoop. Only one student is permitted to claim a hoop whilst others who were unsuccessful puton a sash from the pile to indicate that they are out. One hoop is then removed and all students continue playing. Students with sashescontinue playing in order to prevent students without from claiming hoops. The last student without a sash wins.
Why is this game important for this stage?
-Students will develop and demonstrate an understanding of language used in games such as walking, jogging and sprinting.-Students will develop gross motor skills whilst walking, jogging and sprinting.-The game promotes the maintenance of a healthy weight, strong bones and muscles.-Prompted questioning will promote the students problem solving skills.
What are the PDHPE skills involved in this game? How?
-COES1.1: Communicating- Students will adhere and respond to the simple instructions and rules of the game.-DMES1.2: Decision making- When prompted with questioning, students will generate a number of possible solutions to a problem withinthe game, for example, how will the students without sashes claim hoops before the students with?-MOES1.4: Moving- Students will become aware of the varying speeds they will be required to adopt from jogging or walking whilst themusic is playing to running or sprinting when the music stops.
When and where possible, prompt students with questions to engage them in critical and high order thinking, for example:-How are the sashes going to prevent the non-sashes from claiming hoops?-How are the students who are still in going to claim a hoop before others? Where do they hope to be when the music stops?
