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.
- 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.
- 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.
Suggested Cross-Curricular Links
- EXA 2-06a – work collaboratively to design a safe outdoor play area.
- SOC 2-14a - Draw a map of playground, playing area, identifying key points. Plan an orienteering course round it to use with peers.
