What do you follow for PE planning?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by pocoyo, Jan 1, 2012.

  1. I have a year 1 class and when I took over from the previous teacher last year I asked her what I need to follow for the PE planning and she said just do whatever, they will get a lot from whatever you do as it will be different. It was a bit random so I just did what I thought was best.

    I really need something to follow and I have spoke to the Year 2 teacher who said she follows a certain scheme which I have tried but I find it impractical as it relies on losts of reading of texts which I don't have.
    If anyone could let me know what they follow I would be very grateful.

    If there is anything you might be able to send my address is pocoyo22@hotmail.com

    Thank you so much. x

    Well, I'm <u>no</u>t a PE specialist, but for year 1 I would have thought it would be basic body awareness. Over a year I would expect to cover some gymnastics, dance small and large ball skills (throwing and catching) and using apparatus.
    I've always tried to connect PE with my topic and children love doing the same warm-up exercises, unlike adults who prefer variety, they'll happily do the same ones for several weeks.
    Often you can use games the children play in the playground, tag, skipping and the like.
    Each week I would hope to 're-activate' the previous skill and extend it some way eg catching a different size/shape piece of equipment.

    I fell your pain! I'm naff at PE and don't like it at all. Don't mind teaching it too much, but am not very creative. Moving to year 2 from year 5/6 in Sept has been horrible in terms of PE teaching, especially in a school with nothing in place to use. I looked at the NC and all there is for indoor PE is dance and gymnastics...how the heck does that last a year?!

    Not a lot about on the web either.

    I've just bought this book as a hope it will have some good ideas and inspiration at least as a starting point. Last term I nicked some stuff from a year 3 plan, but it wasn't ideal.

    Our Year 1's do gymnastics, dance , circuit training and multi-skills indoors, ball skills ( inc football, hockey, cricket and tennis) athletics and swimming outdoors. We use a combination of Val Sabin and "anything else we can get our hands on that works" rather than any one scheme.

    As a PE co-ordinator, i'd be a bit worried if the staff at my school weren't following any set thing and were doing a few 'ball skills' here and there! You need a program set up. My school recently bought "Raising the bar" by Ronnie Heath, which looks at the learner across the curriculum and provides some lovely ideas for skills, activities and games. It's not by any means a whole curriculum, more to dip in and out of at your will, but it's a nice starting point. Although i'd suggest going on training as it can be confusing if you haven't been told how to use it!

    We filled in a PE audit in September that asked if we wanted a scheme and if we knew any good ones. I said "Yes we do urgently please" and gave some examples, from ideas on here. Do we have a scheme? Do we have any vague plans? Do we have any real resources? NOPES!

  9. In my last few school placements and new job we have based PE on the Val Sabin stuff, although I don't think I've really heard of anyone sticking to the plans properly. I take the basic aims/objectives, use their ideas if they're any good, but then adapt them if not :)

    In my last school we dipped in and out of the LCP P.E. scheme.
    We tried to link our PE with our topic work, but the LCP stuff did give us a starting point.
  11. Wow...it seems that most schools have nothing to follow.

    Also, I have just recently been made the PE Co-ordinator. :-0

    Maybe I need to try and get something in place. I have only been there since Easter so still trying to find my feet.

    Thank you for all your replies. x

    I quite like the LCP scheme, but it is too expensive to buy just as a teacher needing a starting point.
  13. Wow, it seems that our school is not the only one that doesn't have anything to follow.

    Also, I have just been recently made the PE Co-ordinator! :-0 I have only been there since Easter but myabe I need to look at getting something in place.

    Thank you for your replies. x
