Suggested Learning Experiences
The Healthy Schools approach has been designed to run alongside a core PE programme. This enables more effective support for pupils’ understanding of the importance of an active lifestyle and helps to develop skills associated with habitual physical activity.
- Children should be given the opportunity to engage in a range of activities which develop core fundamental skills – control, travel, timing, rhythm, balance, co-ordination, The following suggested experiences are therefore not exhaustive.
- Explore a range of movement skills on floor and low level apparatus, including travelling, jumping, landing and rolling.
- Explore movement in response a range of stimuli eg, voice, music, instructions, stories, nursery rhymes etc.
- Explore movement on different limbs and parts of the body both on the floor and low level apparatus eg, benches – from direct instruction to personal exploring and investigating.
- Develop body control through performing simple balances on different parts of the body.
- Travel at different speeds, levels – walking, hopping, jumping.
- Engage in a range of throwing, rolling, striking, aiming and catching activities using different types, size and shape of equipment.
- Engage in a range of individual, partner and group activities to promote independent and collaborative learning.
- Self and peer assessment – discuss what they found easy/difficult and why. Consider how they might get better at a particular skill.
- Work with partner and describe the way the other is moving, eg which animal is it like, slow/fast, high/low etc. Offer feedback on how they can make their movements/actions more controlled.
Suggested Cross-Curricular Links
- MNU 0-17a – Within a range of activities, develop positional language eg high, low etc.
