Room 3 students have been creating and evaluating fitness courses to improve their fitness levels and to encourage greater enjoyment of getting fitter.
Students developed a success criteria for an effective fitness course:
Activities must get our hearts pumping
Activities must be fun - not boring
Activities must be safe - unlikely to injure each other
Activities must not damage our environment
Activities must not need too much equipment or they will take forever to set up
To start this process students experienced some fitness courses that Mrs Sprague dreamed up. They found she is very fond of step ups and terrible at sit ups. Exploring fitness circuit resources that are found on the internet was another initial step. This process helped students get ideas and identify what type of activities were fun and effective.
Parkour Pairs from the Movewell challenge games resource. The village park was a great place for students to explore Parkour. Our criteria of activities must be safe - unlikely to injure each other and activities must not damage our environment were our key focus areas for Parkour running courses.
Students learnt how to respectfully reflect on and evaluate their own and each other's fitness activities and courses. This involved presenting their opinions in a respectful way and giving examples of why they thought that. Students could also suggest improvements.
