Festive Fitness Focused Inter-House

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 […]

Co-ordination & Addition: Maths on the Move

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!

P.E Deep Dive! A helping hand…

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 […]

Trip to Tokyo!

Activities to improve the stamina of your younger pupils!

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 […]

Spice up your Athletics approach this Summer!

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 […]

Primary P.E Self Assessment sheet!

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 […]

Activities to improve balance!

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!
