Raising Achievement across the curriculum using PESS
Research shows that, in addition to developing physical literacy, placing PE and sport at the heart of school life can bring about significant improvements in achievement, attendance and behaviour. Please see below examples and resources on how to raise achievement across the curriculum using major sporting events to engage young people in their learning.
As a nation we face a huge challenge with regard to the health of our future generations. Of particular concern is the issue of healthy weight in children of school age. We wish to capture the inspiration generated by the London 2012 Games to help schools address this.
Road to Rio Challenge
The Road to Rio challenge is designed to encourage young people in Hampshire to take part in more physical activity & sport. The challenge is very simple – For pupils to take part in 2016 minutes (35 hours) of extra curricular clubs involving physical activity in the run up to the Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games.
The clubs can be before school, lunch time or after school. Once the session has been completed pupils get their teacher to stamp their card. Certificates, prizes or medals can then be awarded (Gold, Silver or Bronze) for the number of hours completed.
