To reflect means to examine and consider different aspects of your own and others’ actions, attitudes and ideas. We may also reflect on a subject, practical activities or our own learning. Reflection means testing out our own thoughts and attitudes to develop better insight and understanding.
- planand carry out outdoor activities and outdoor life in the local area
To plan means to set up a course of action to reach a goal. The plan describes how we intend to reach the goal, and may show the link between activities, implementation and the goal.
Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence in physical education in vg3 by practising and developing knowledge and skills in a variety of movement activities and by collaborating on solving practical tasks in a learning environment. The pupils also demonstrate competence by planning, carrying out and assessing their own exercise, outdoor activities and outdoor life in the local area.
In physical education, interaction with others, practising and participating in different movement activities and nature wandering are essential aspects of the competence in the subject. The efforts made by the pupils are part of the competence in physical education. Making an effort in physical education means that the pupil endeavours to solve subject-related challenges to the best of his/her ability without giving up, demonstrates independence, challenges his/her own physical capacity and cooperates with others.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate the desire to learn through a variety of movement activities the pupils perform alone or with others, and when they assess their own work in physical education. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue about their development in physical education. The pupils shall have the opportunity to experiment in the subject. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall have the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved, and reflect on their development in the subject. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their competence in movement activities, exercising in the context of lifestyle and health, cooperation and in interaction with others, and in outdoor activities and outdoor life in the local area.
Assessment of coursework
The grade awarded for coursework shall reflect the overall competence of the pupil in physical education after completing Vg3. The teacher shall plan and facilitate for the pupils to demonstrate their competence in a variety of ways, including through understanding, reflection and deliberation, and in various contexts. The teacher shall award a grade in physical education based on the competence demonstrated by the pupil in the subject. Interaction with others, practising and participating in different movement activities and nature wandering are essential aspects of competence in physical education. The pupils' efforts are part of the competence in physical education and are therefore part of the basis for assessment.
