Physical Education

The Importance of Movement

The Aim of Physical Education at RPS we aim to develop learners’ physical knowledge and well-being. Not only is it important for us to get learners outside for exercise once a week, we try to emphasise how important it is to continue a healthy lifestyle throughout their lives.

We incorporate elements of movement, learning and fun. Not only do we cover basic training on the sports offered at Rynfield, we also try to develop the learners in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle.

Phys Ed is part of the Life Skills curriculum which deals with a holistic approach to learning throughout childhood. Included is, Personal and Social Well-being, Physical Education and Creative Arts. As the Phys Ed department we try to encourage practical life skills when it comes to physical activities to assist learners in developing their own physical, personal, emotional and social potential.

Activities that we incorporate into our lessons include fine and gross motor activities, creating and building their own obstacles, co-ordination skills, balance, flexibility and sport knowledge, to name a few. These types of motor skills are essential to develop a learner’s co-ordination, balance and special awareness that is not only important for developing sport skills, but also helps within the classroom.

The learners are also given the opportunity to make up their own obstacle courses or games that their classmates would have to complete.

Water safety is our main goal when it comes to swimming. Teaching children to feel safe in the water and respect not only the coach’s rules, but also the water itself. We concentrate on teaching the learners how to get in and out of the water safely, blowing bubbles, floating and jumping.
