Other Work Samples for:

Mackenzie has demonstrated a high level of competence in the fundamental movement skills of overarm throwing and catching. Although Mackenzie does not always take a side-on stance and rotation of the upper body is not obvious, there is good control over most of the actions. To improve, Mackenzie needs to work on transferring weight to the front foot and following through with the throwing action. Proficiency in catching is enhanced by the way Mackenzie moves towards the flight of the ball. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard at the end of Stage 2.
