The New Way of Learning - Physical Education 13/07/20
In these challenging times, many people thought that Physical Education (PE) could not stand alongside other subjects, yet here at Rosedale, we have shone through the fear and uncertainty to prove that PE remains vital to our curriculum and lifestyle.
We have adapted and differentiated our lessons, demonstrating that PE is a well-positioned contributor towards a new way of learning. Our PE teachers have been innovative and creative, enabling students’ access to the sports that they love, whilst still maintaining social distancing. We have provided opportunities for our fantastic students to participate in ‘football golf’, ‘basketball circuits’, ‘football tennis’, and ‘end-to-end fuse ball’. Students have relished in competing in badminton games and tournaments, as well as gaining an understanding of how to umpire singles and doubles games. We are reigniting our love for sport and enabling our students to be physically literate once again.
As the summer holidays approach, it is important to remember that we, as individuals, are accountable for our own health and fitness. Children between 5 and 17 years old should be participating in 60 minutes of exercise a day! So why not continue your PE journey at home? #ThisIsPE provides a set of resources designed to challenge you in all manner of sports. Why not have a go and let the PE department know how you get on?
