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

  • Use different parts of their body to explore the space around them and to move using simple actions eg. walking, running, hopping.
  • Explore different movements in response to a variety of stimuli eg, whistle, clap, music, voice.
  • Practice moving at different speeds, directions and levels both independently and in small groups.
  • Select, set up apparatus/equipment for a simple group activity, with support.
  • Provide opportunities for children to work independently and take simple risks eg, outdoor learning - make their own assault course.
  • Encourage children to carry, set up and store equipment safely – this could be built into routines within the gym hall to promote independence and problem-solving skills.

Small Space

  • Discuss why we need to be safe when moving about.
  • Discuss why we need to be safe when playing outside.
  • Write rules for carrying and setting out equipment safely.
  • Create a simple game/activity to play with a friend using selected apparatus.
