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

  • Facilitate a range of outdoor learning opportunities eg, assault course/trim trails/forest walks etc to allow children to experience ‘real risks’ within the natural environment.
  • Provide opportunities for children to work independently and take simple risks eg, outdoor learning - make their own assault course.

Small Space

  • Discuss what they need to do to be safe in  situations like the ones listed above.
  • Consider familiar games that the children know, and list the rules that exist within these games.
  • Encourage children to repeat the rules of a game before playing to ensure that everyone understands what is expected.
  • Create rules that allow everyone to be involved in a game/activity eg, instead of being put ‘out’ in a game of tig, children have to perform a given action.
