Primary PE - moving equipment

Discussion in 'Primary' started by wwvirgin, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. I have just been put in charge of PE inmy primary schools. I would like to find examples of how to move equipment safely how different stations may look. These could then be used in the hall. I have looked on line but can't find any examples, so am really hoping someone can point me in the right direction!
    Many thanks

    I'm guessing you mean gymnastics. Contact your health and safety person at county for advice on moving equipment. Children should be encouraged to move equipment provided they have been shown the correct way to do it.
    As for stations, it depends on what you've got, how big your hall is and how many children are involved. Use your imagination but I generally put 2 peices of equipment together with room on the floor to work. I rotate the children round the stations.

    in reality there are not many books describg thins.....most of the work is commone sences....like 2 childrn moving a gym mat. o r 4 to move a horse or 2 to move a bench..depending upon thier age
    Its things like which mats to be used where and supervision when using appuratus....such as leaping off and balancing upon beams.doing forward rolls etc As a rule i used to use mats on landing and to the side of higher balances and for rolling///but often you can use small mats for individual or pair work. Theolder pull out appuratus must be checked by a specialist pe firm each year and so to mats and benches and any other equipment there there is a risk of breakage
    When i was full time i used to train my kids to handle equipment sensibly and mostly they did it well.
