Suggested Learning Experiences

COVID Support  - Education Scotland have highlighted physical education as a critical learning opportunity for pupils as they heal, re-connect, and adapt on their return to school.  To support schools with these considerations and others, they have released specific guidelines designed to assist with the planning, decision-making and the safe implementation of curricular physical education.

Large Space 

  • Use orienteering games to develop fitness and enjoyment outdoors eg score orienteering event.
  • Through outdoor learning, engage in a variety of tasks which allow learners to develop the movement skills of run, climb, jump, balance etc.

Small Space

  • Mind map the things that they do that are not easy and require commitment and practice.
  • Identify how to give positive, constructive feedback to motivate others eg, two stars and a wish.
  • Create situations where children will be able to achieve success at their level. Discuss how their own and their peers’ performance can be improved. This could lead to discussions about perseverance and reinforcing the importance of trying and not giving up. Children could consider an athlete, for example, and discuss why they keep going and persevere eg, personal commitment, motivation, willingness to succeed, despite physical demands of the training.
