Physical activity helps us to improve our mental wellbeing
Students continue to enjoy outdoor face to face physical education teaching. We have moved to our summer activities which include: rounders, softball, athletics and cricket alongside a winter team games module to ensure our students do not miss out on the delivery of these sports. Most sports have been taught outside and have followed the recommended Covid guidelines for that governing body, but with the return of the sports hall, small groups have used our sports hall once again in their year group bubbles. Although it can be cold our participants are encouraged to put on plenty of layers underneath their PE kit and asked to make sure that they stay as active as possible. That said, we have had some beautiful, sunny days and students needed to think about sunscreen and extra hydration. Oh the English weather!!
Alongside the lessons our extra-curricular programme has started in earnest, although staggered lunchtimes and the necessity of year groups having to train in bubbles has limited what we can do. See the table of activities below.
