Physical Education


Children at Roberts McCubbin Primary School participate in one hour of Physical Education per week.  In Foundation to year 4 the main focus is on the Fundamental Motor skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, striking etc.

In year 5 and 6  we add to the Fundamental Motor Skills and also include game sense which focusses on tactics and stategies.

In addition, students in 3/4 particpate in an hour of sport with their classroom teachers.  The 5/6 students also engage in a weekly program where they develop their skills in sports such as Football, Netball, Basketball, Teeball, Volleyball etc. and have opportunities to participate in inter-school competitions with other local primary schools.

Throughout the year, students from 3-6 participate in Cross Country and Athletics at both School and District level.   

Children in Foundation to year 2 participate in a yearly, intensive swimming program that runs for 8 days.
