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 a range of activities that use lots of and less energy eg, fast/slow running, skipping, walking.
  • Engage in range of partner relay activities both indoors and outdoors.
  • Take turns at being coach and athlete – record and monitor progress in a variety of activities eg, skipping for 30 seconds, shuttle runs, step-ups, bouncing a ball.

Small Space

  • Consider the frequency, intensity and duration of different levels and types of activity.
  • Consider how their body feels following different levels of activity eg, heart beats faster, breathe more heavily, body sweats etc following more rigorous activity.
  • Compare how they feel when taking part in the same activity at different times of the day. Record results on a feelings/achievement chart/profile.
  • Consider factors that might affect their performance with particular emphasis on food ie meal times, portion sizes, energy, type of food etc.
  • Develop and adapt a variety of games with a partner that uses minimal equipment.
  • Discuss with a partner ways in which activities can be made more/less challenging.
  • Learners should be encouraged to set own goals and evaluate success, setting new targets for their own future development.
