Just another festive and active idea for you to try out in your Schools. The way we run this is a house at a time, blasting out Christmas music and with a timer running on the big screen in the Hall. Here is the ‘Festive Fitness Focused Inter-House’… Feel free to wear as many […]
I’ve had fun with this activity in the last few weeks… Nice and simple. Give each pair/team a piece of paper and a pencil and 3 bean bags. The kids score points if they manage to throw their bean bag and hit a cone! Simple, great and effective! Enjoy!
Last week on Wednesday one of my 8 Schools were the lucky winners of an Ofsted Inspection! P.E was chosen for the Deep Dive – to be honest the experience was intense yet enjoyable. Work is too busy at the minute to type out another detailed account – but I have managed to type out […]
Short and sweet from me. Some of your children may be watching the Rugby World Cup and will watch the Athletics when that starts on Friday! More importantly (arguably) – some will not be aware that it is even happening! I believe personally that EVERY girl in the country should be aware of Dina Asher-Smith […]
I hope everyone has had a good first day back, in the coming days I’m hoping to share quite a lot of my idea’s for the coming year. But for now I thought I’d share this quick and easy challenge my Schools are having a go at in this Olympic year. I hope this gets […]
The most recent NHS Publication regarding Obesity in the UK makes for worrying reading. The ‘headlines’ are these… There were 10, 660 hospital admissions directly attributable to obesity 29% of adults are classified as obese 20% of Year 6 children are classified as obese (in less affluent areas the prevalence of obesity is double than […]
In one of our Schools we found an inconsistency with which activities and equipment were being set out for the children at dinner time. In an attempt to combat this, I met with the lunchtime supervisors one afternoon. I borrowed 10-12 Year 5 children and I showed the lunchtime some really easy, fun, engaging games […]
Athletics is amazing once Summer finally comes around…. if you’re one of the fastest/strongest. If you aren’t in that privileged group then poorly taught Athletics can be pretty unrewarding/boring for the middle to lower ability children. In our group of Schools we emphasise that who wins races/events in lessons isn’t too important. That is for […]
I believe kids should be as active as possible in P.E lessons – but I also wanted to help our kids reflect on their perceived progress. So I’ve had a go at creating a self-assessment sheet to help guide this process. The idea is for each child to have one of the sheets, once they […]
Last year one of our Schools had a child with dyspraxia join us – One key symptom was an inability to hold their balance a lot of the time. So I came up with some activities to help them practice the skill. I hope some of you find them useful!
