Strand priority for school year 2018/2019
Our school prioritises a different PE strand for further development each year. This year we have decided to focus on the Athletics strand. Members of staff have undertaken CPD in Athletics recently. We now have access to Move Well, Move Often Fundamental Movement Skills in Athletics handbooks and resources as a result. New knowledge, ideas and resources have been shared out amongst staff. As a staff we utilise the PSSI lesson plans and we strive to implement new teaching and methodologies in all of our Athletics lessons. During active school week we had teaser lesson in movement skills from Fun Fitness. The children also learned new skills in athletics as part of our after school activity club. And now, the children are putting their sprinting and relay skills to the test in preparation for Cork City sports! Taking all of this into account, we feel that we have successfully prioritised Athletics this year.
