ACHPER QLD is pleased to announce Steve Wayne from Westminster School Adelaide as the Keynote Speaker at the 2017 Primary HPE Conference. Steve is the author of Daily Does It 2 which contains over 80 games and activities designed to maximise participation in physical activity from P-6. Steve's keynote presentation 'Get on board the health train' will be followed by a practical session on 'Daily does it 2'.

Steve has been involved in teaching and coaching physical education and sport to Primary school children for 40 years. He has taught in both government and independent schools and is keen to share his wealth of experience and knowledge with teachers.

Get on board the health train

Children need the value of lifelong health and physical activity to be instilled in them from a young age. In some cases this is achieved through family, but more often than not, it relies on the school to ensure Health and PE is embedded in their lives and that the children’s experiences are positive and worthwhile. Often PE and Health is the first subject to be dropped by teachers when the pressure of improving numeracy and literacy is ever present. We will examine reasons why teachers should be fully committed to teaching health at primary school level.

Daily does it 2

Focusing directly on involvement in sport, come dressed to enjoy an active 70 minute workshop where games and activities contained in Daily Does It 2, will have a specific focus on Game Sense for Physical Education lessons and coaching team sports.

You will be able to use these skills to develop the abilities of children that you teach. Game Sense is integral to many PE and coaching lessons. The game centred approach involves guided play using questions and direct instruction to improve tactical understanding and game development. These skills can be successfully transferred across many sports.

Game Sense is knowledge in three parts:

  • Knowing what to do
  • Knowing how to do it
  • Being able to execute the skills correctly
