WE LOVE P.E!
In Callystown we love P.E! All classes enjoy a minimum of 60 minutes of PE during the week. PE is split into two sessions during certain parts of the year. This is to facilitate the many partnerships we have with sporting organisations outside the school. Our PE curriculum is broad and varied. The strands of the PE curriculum are Games, Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Aquatics and Outdoor & Adventure Activities. We have taken a whole school approach to teaching the strands.
In order to reach our target 60 minutes of physical activity each day, we incorporate active breaks, such as Go Noodle, Just Dance, Drop Everything and Run and Wake Up, Shake Up into our daily routines in each of our classes. Active lines were introduced with great success last year and will continue this year.
We also invite outside coaches from our local community to our school to enhance our PE curriculum.
Every child in our school will also be receiving active homework on their PE day. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to join in and get active together!
