Here at Woodlands we are determined to go further than the national curriculum and put physical activity at the heart of the school. We want all children to be inspired to participate in an activity that they enjoy, so we expose them to as many sports and activities as we can, to make PE fun, exciting and motivational for all children to continue being active throughout their time in education and adult life. Therefore, to further develop knowledge and understanding of being active, outside of PE lessons we have morning exercises to get children ready for the school day, active breaks to ensure that children are not sedentary for more than 30 minutes at a time and give children responsibility to become playground leaders, where they encourage others to be active and join in with playground games.
Here are some of the exercise videos we have been following at school:
Winter Olympics and Rugby Six Nations
To celebrate the Winter Olympics and Rugby Six Nations, we have created our own mini events at lunchtime. We have had Kurling (the indoor version of curling), ski jump, bobsledding, ice hockey and snowboarding. We have also been playing rugby passing games, tag and tag rugby for our own rugby six nations games.
Here are a few pictures of our activities!
