At Feniscowles we decided that the use of an i-pad would help us in the assessment of PE lessons and the recording of the different activities we participate in.
Impact of the Schools’ Sports Premium 2014 -2015
Our children in 2014 -2015 have had access to a wide range of competitions. Our success in these competitions can be seen from our list of successes. It has also allowed us to take part in new activities.
Employing a specialist gymnastics coach a day a week has helped the staff to learn new and creative ways to teach gymnastics within the curriculum and given them more confidence. The development of the children’s gymnastic skills can clearly be seen and has positively been commented on by staff and parents. This year a number of children entered the Year 3 and 4 Gymnastics competition and for the first time one of our Year 4 girls came third in the individual event and went on to represent Blackburn with Darwen at the Lancashire Spar games which were held in Blackpool in June.
A group of children have been trained as play leaders at lunch time. This helps to develop the children’s leadership and confidence skills.
The money has enabled us to buy an i-pad which is a valuable tool for Sport and PE. As it is mobile it can be used both inside and outside. It is an excellent tool to be used in PE in order to inspire children’s learning, recap prior learning and help share excellent practice. It is a very effective teacher tool that can support assessment.
