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

  • Games-Making activities - using a range of small equipment eg, hoops, quoits, balls, racquets, etc. Create simple rules, consider safety.
  • Aesthetics eg, gymnastics/dance – work with a partner to design a routine involving balance, rotation, inversion and travelling, thinking about safe use of space and equipment.
  • Central net and wall activities eg, volleyball, badminton, tennis – create a mini activity with a partner which focuses on passing and moving, throwing and catching – encourage children to think about safe space, timing, cue recognition.
  • Outdoor Learning – eg team-building activities, orienteering, to reinforce learning about safety of self and others in the outdoor environment.

Small Space

  • Whole-school events eg, sports day/week – children could be involved in planning a sports event for the whole school – this could involve risk assessment – consider best use of available space in school grounds, weather, equipment, staffing, contingency planning, suitability of activities for age and number of pupils etc.
