At Redhill, we encourage our children to follow an active lifestyle to improve both their physical fitness and their overall wellbeing. We encourage children to develop their physical skills, to work individually and as part of a team and to show increasing control and competence, evaluating their work as they go. We encourage children to recognise that PE is just one way of living a healthy lifestyle and taking part and enjoying PE can lead to improved health and mental well being.
After School Clubs
The current after school clubs are as follows:
Monday: Football (led by Howard)
Tuesday: Multiskills (led by John)
Thursday: Basketball (led by John)
All clubs run from 3-4pm
Wake up, Shake up!
In Key Stage One, children participate in the 'Wake Up, Shake Up' programme twice a week in the small hall. They learn short routines to pop songs to "wake them up" and get them ready for the school day. To find out more about the programme, visit the website here.
Across school, we encourage children to be as active as possible during the day. This includes Brain Gym and Active 5 minute and 8 minute workouts, timetable permitting! Check out Year 2 below carrying out a Joe Wicks Active 5m work out!
PE and PHSE
Through our PE and PHSE curriculum, we strive to give our pupils the information they need to make the right decisions about their health and well being. Using the 2020 PHSE statutory guidance and our SCARF scheme of work, we teach:
- the characteristics and mental and physical benefits of an active lifestyle
- the importance of building regular exercise into daily and weekly routines and how to achieve this; for example walking or cycling to school, a daily active mile or other forms of regular, vigorous exercise
- the risks associated with an inactive lifestyle (including obesity).
- how and when to seek support including which adults to speak to in school if they are worried about their health.
Please find our PE policy below. If you have further questions, please see your child's class teacher.
