At Rosehill School, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to our student’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to increase student’s self-confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.
The Physical Education Programme at Rosehill, includes weekly PE lessons, includes morning running, KS2 swimming, rebound therapy, music and movement, gymnastics, and classroom-based activities such as Activate and Wake & Shake. All pupils are able to be involved in PE and can succeed at their own ability level, enabling them to progress in gross motor skills, which support many required to develop skills for adulthood. In addition, we aim to develop an enjoyment of activities, which will lead to improved lifelong health and self-confidence as well as social interaction.
Aims of PE:
Rebound Therapy has developed into a very popular lesson. Used as part of PE lessons as well as forming an important part of the day for those pupils on an individual timetable, Rebound Therapy (using the trampoline) is an extremely motivating activity. Its strengths are many; It is used to facilitate communication, movement and coordination skills, promote balance, increase or decrease muscle tone, promote sensory integration, and improve fitness levels. It is beneficial for all abilities from those who prefer to be seated when practising skills to those who can aspire to different types of jumps and routines.
