Connecting with Contexts, Concepts and Colleagues in the HPE Learning Area
This workshop is for primary teachers and is about connecting with contexts, concepts and colleagues to strengthen practice within the key area of learning in Health and Physical Education (HPE) through health education, food and nutrition and/or outdoor education/camp/EOTC in year 0-8.
By attending this workshop, you will connect with others, deepen your understanding of progression of learning against the curriculum, and develop knowledge to enhance learners’ learning experiences and learning outcomes.
We will engage in a variety of interactive, hands-on and collaborative activities to explore:
- The new HPE learning progressions (food and nutrition)
- Working in partnership with outside providers to enhance programmes of learning and meet learners’ needs
- Innovative, connected and responsive programme planning – depending on interest and need, we will focus on a selection from: enhancing literacy and critical thinking in HPE learning contexts, the underlying concepts of HPE, meaningful engagement with the key competencies, tackling the tricky topics (e.g. sexuality education and mental health), re-visioning school camps.
The day will be structured with whole group and small group activities.
