Physical Education

Physical Education

All classes are taught 5 different PE strands each year: Athletics, Aquatics, Gymnastics, Games, Outdoor and Adventure. In Warrenmount each class receives at least an hour per week of physical education. By taking part in the Active School Flag programme it has helped us to focus on an improved provision of Physical Education in the school. Teachers use the Primary Schools' Sport Initiate to help when teaching and delivering the different strands. For further information on our PE programme, please see our School Policies.


The strand units of the athletics curriculum include:
  • Running
  • Jumping
  • Throwing
  • Understanding and appreciation of athletics
Athletics was our strand for development and we focused on this strand in our Physical Education lessons in September and October. This coincided at the same time as our Run Around Europe programme and was also ran in our After School Club held on Tuesdays.

When delivering the athletics programme it was important to provide opportunities for the child to challenge themselves to run faster or for a longer period, to throw an implement further and to jump further or higher. The children in 6th monitored their running over a period and increased their running time day by day.
For the running strand unit the children enjoyed sprinting, long distance running and relays. Depending on the class level the children did standing start and reaction sprints, pair and group relay, running over flat markers or hurdles and shuttle sprints of different distances.

The strand units of the Games curriculum include:
  • Sending, receiving and travelling
  • Creating and playing games
  • Understanding and appreciation of games
During Games lessons children are provided with opportunities to develop skills, create and play games, understand and appreciate new and familiar games. The children have opportunities to develop skills and understanding through enjoyable individual, small group and team activities.
Children experienced a balance of skills and games in a number of categories: Invasion Games, Net Games, Fielding/Striking and Target Games.
This strand was also supported by local visiting coaches from St Kevins Hurling Club, Eimear from FAI Ireland and Solas Volunteers who taught us how to play Tag Rugby!
One of our After School Club's also teaches us how to play Gaelic Football which we love!
