Active Literacy!

On Friday 13th November Primary PE Coordinators from across our Partnership gathered for the first of our annual three Primary PE Days.

The focus for the day was Active Literacy: using PE & Sport to Raise Achievement in English and was delivered by national partner Youth Sport Trust.

With a focus on Key Stage 1 in the morning and Key Stage 2 in the afternoon, teachers were introduced to new and exciting ways of using the context of PE & Sport, alongside practical learning approaches, to support the teaching of English across the school.

The workshop used existing resources alongside the new National Curriculum, and supported delegates with practical teaching strategies and resources linked to reading, writing, speaking & listening.

What went well according to delegates…..

‘Being given different ideas for active English learning; thinking about how I can teach all English writing genres using sport as a stimuli’

‘Loads of great ideas without upping my workload!  Loved the handwriting stuff’

Good ideas about fine / gross motor skills.  Interesting to link this to English – not something I would have thought to do.’

Reminded to plan more active activities for literacy (and maths), make Grammar more fun!
