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.

Large  Space

  • Engage in play with a variety of peers, including those who are friends or not friends.
  • Provide opportunities for children to work on their own/with a partner/in a small group and as a class. Practice being both the leader and follower in a variety of physical activities to allow children to take turns and perform different roles.
  • Practice sharing an object (e.g., ball) and space with another person.
  • Provide a range of activities eg, activity stations that children can choose from to develop specific skills with their peers.
  • Playground games – provide a range of equipment that children can select to invent own games to play on own and with others.

Small space

  • Provide opportunities for children to offer positive feedback to their peers
  • Discuss times when they have worked and played well with others.
  • Create a display of photos of children working co-operatively in the gym hall/during physical activity.
