How much PE do you do in school, and do you believe it is enough?

We do PE for 2 full hours a week, both indoor and outdoor. I believe, it is enough at our school, as we are lucky to have a Sports Coach, but we also need to focus academically for our exams. Extra physical fitness can be provided outside of the school day if people choose.

 

What is your favourite sport, and why?

Rugby –  I’ve been playing for a club since age 4, it strengthens up your body muscles and gives you confidence. You make incredible friendships outside of the classroom and it teaches you team skills, lots of discipline and respect for others. I’ve even led Saracens out at the London Stadium!

 

What sport or form of exercise would you love to do at school, and why?

Football please! I love it too, it is very competitive and I play after-school. Girls are getting more into it after the Women’s World Cup 2019. Great team sport for speed, improves mental and physical fitness too. PE sessions for 30 minutes playing a match some weeks would be amazing so everyone could benefit.

 

Why is exercise important as part of a healthy lifestyle?

Exercise builds strong bones and muscles. It keeps you healthy and stops you getting fat! Helps you concentrate in school and is good for the brain. Lets keep on doing it!

“I've been really pleased with the outcome of the class videos. They independently created their own school prospectus video, which the Head then used as part of our open evening for new parents. The scaffold provided through the resources were instrumental in their success.”
