A closer look at the Physical Education Curriculum being taught in our school.
PAWS Water Safety
Senior Infants 2021
This May, the Senior Infants will embark on their PAWS journey, learning all about water safety in a fun and engaging way. We will follow the lesson plan set for us and complete the worksheet and activities together. We will work hard to learn all about water safety. We will also receive a presentation from a local lifeguard to reinforce all that we have learned while engaging with the Aquatics strand of the PE curriculum.
Belgrove's PE Press
Storage and Equipment for PE Classes
Recently updated, labelled and organised to make PE equipment more accessible to all classes. We are hoping to buy Hoola Hoop racks in the future and a second storage press for our outdoor PE equipment. Thank you, Ms. Breslin and Ms. Rushe, for your organisational skills!
A commitment to Physical Education
60 minutes of PE weekly
Here in Belgrove we are committed to delivering no less than 60 minutes of PE each week to the girls. Our Hall timetable has been drawn up with this in mind. We are lucky to have use of the Astro Turf and a super play area where PE lessons can be delivered outdoors.
Recently Puchased Equipment
Some pictures of new PE equipment bought for PE lessons and active playgrounds.
Our PE School Plan
Our school follows a PE plan, setting out our strands and strand units to be covered in each stream. We recently added elements of FMS (Fundamental Movement Skills) to our plans, setting out a path and progression for each stream. Teachers try to stick to our timeline as best as possible, ensuring that the classes cover the PE curriculum during their time in the Infant Girls School. Reminders of chosen strands and FMS skills are on the walls of our PE hall.
