Physical Activity is the promotion and engagement of exercise and movement in addition to the 60 minute per week timetabled curriculum subject of Physical Education. We have been very busy engaging in a wide variety of different programmes, ideas, and initiatives which have inspired the children to become more active.
All classes found 3 ways to decrease sedentary time and these were promoted outside of the classroom. And we all also found different ways to have an activity break every day for the month of November.
St Pius X GNS promotes the full range of fundamental movement skills during break times and pupils are encouraged to run, play and be active. We have two daily playground breaks and our schoolyard is zoned to allow children to engage in a variety of different activities.
All pupils engage in an extended classroom-based physical activity break on wet days and short physical activity breaks during the day.
Our school incorporates physical activity into school calendar events as we hold different seasonal activities.
