Health & Physical Education unit plan templates

The Health and Physical Education curriculum has undergone some minor changes and utilises the following strands: Health and Physical Development, Movement Concepts and Motor Skills, Relationships with other people and Healthy communities and environment.

These Health and Physical Education resources are all based on the new curriculum document. The achievement objectives and key competencies have been adapted from there. At the bottom of the page you will find links to the blank unit planners for each level 1-4, covering the primary years.

Remember to delete those achievement objectives not needed and fill in the Specific Learning Outcomes.

Each of these unit plan templates contains the full complement of Achievement Objectives in each strand.

What is health and physical education about?

  • Attitudes and values – a positive, responsible attitude on the part of students to their own well-being; respect; care and concern for other people and the environment; and a sense of social justice.
