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.
- Experiment with a range of physical activities which will increase their heart rate eg, playing tig, jogging, skipping, running, walking briskly, obstacle courses, relays.
- Photograph/video children taking part in different energetic activities – this can be used to provide an opportunity for children to reflect on what they have learned and to talk about how the activities made them feel.
- Set up a range of activity stations that focus on using different parts of the body. Encourage children to think about the parts of their body they think they will be exercising the most. After each activity, get the children to place stickers on an outline of a body to show which parts they think they have used most.
- Describe/illustrate how they look and feel before, during and after physical activity eg, excited, nervous, happy, tired, hot, red, sweaty etc.
- Listen to their heart beating and their breathing before, during and after exercise and describe/record the changes that take place.
- Talk about their favourite activity/sport – what is it that they like about it? How does it make them feel?
Suggested Cross-Curricular Links
- EXA 0-04a – Make pictures of how they look before/during/after exercise.
- LIT 0-10a – Create a word wall of vocabulary to describe how they feel before, during and after exercise.
- TCH 0-04b – Take photographs/record sounds of children playing together indoors/outdoors.
- EXA 0-04a - Create a 2D model of the human body, labelling the main organs associated with physical activity eg, heart, lungs.
