Tune In To PE At Home

 

Government Guidelines recommend 60 active minutes for every child, every day.  Check out the links below for ideas to help everyone achieve this whilst at home.  If you have any great ideas, or come across any websites that you would recommend, email us on pe@bjsglt.co.uk so that we can add them to the list and share ideas.

“Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.”

Implementation of Physical Education at Bedgrove Junior School

 

At Bedgrove Junior School, we recognise that physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical and mental health and that access to sufficient daily activity can have wider benefits for all, improving behaviour and enhancing academic achievement.

 

Our children work across eleven different topics throughout the school year.  Each child receives one hour of teaching per week from our PE Department, usually working in small, focused groups, of approximately 20 children.  In addition, each fortnight, class teachers will typically lead one hour of dance or gymnastics and a second hour of outdoor sport such as netball or tennis.   

Swimming is a national curriculum requirement, with all pupils expected to be able to swim confidently, and know how to be safe in and around water by the time that they leave us in year 6.  This is one lesson that could literally save a child’s life and all children at Bedgrove Junior School receive sixteen, thirty minute swimming lessons during year 5.  This year, we have been able to enhance our lessons through utilising the skills of Mr Morgan, one of our LSAs who is a qualified swimming teacher, to reduce our pupil to staff ratio in the pool, improving learning opportunities for all.

 

Government guidelines state that every child should participate in at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation that 30 minutes of this is delivered during the school day. On days when children do not have a PE lesson, they take part in Mile-A-Day or our new Jump Start Jonny activity, providing an opportunity for a short burst of high intensity activity.  This is supported through active play during break times, with our lunchtime supervisors and Sports Leaders leading and supporting activities.

 

Whilst, as a school, we have traditionally been very successful in competitive sport, this is only part of the picture.  Through membership of our local School Sports Partnership, we are able to maximise inclusive opportunities.  For example, all 240 children in years 3 and 4 will take part in multiskills events, at local secondary schools, during the school year. In addition, we enter multiple teams into events whenever possible, such as a recent handball tournament and a number of our Sports Leaders will attend off-site training to bring new ideas and opportunities to our playgrounds.  This is in addition to league events featuring our four football and two netball teams and a range of sports competitions from dodgeball to badminton and swimming to basketball.  We value each contribution and every event, regardless of the result, is celebrated in our weekly celebration assemblies.

When playing I will:

  • Always play to the best of my ability
  • Play fairly – I won’t cheat, complain or waste time
  • Respect my team-mates, the other team, the referee or my coach/manager
  • Play by the rules , as directed by the referee
  • Shake hands with the other team and referee at the end of the game
  • Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me
  • Talk to someone I trust, my coach or my teacher if I’m unhappy about anything

When spectating I will:

  • Remember that children play for fun
  • Applaud effort and good play as well as success
  • Always respect the match official’s decisions
  • Remain outside the field of play and within the designated spectators’ area (where provided)
  • Let the coach do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition, referee and match officials
  • Avoid criticising a player for making a mistake – mistakes are part of learning
  • Never engage in behaviour that could be considered offensive by others

 

Don't forget to provide your child with a bottle of water each day :-)
