Year 4-6 Fit it Forward Challenge

Our PE Departments mission is to create an environment that fosters a life-long love of sports through participation and providing opportunities to develop, success and excel.

In February and March Year 4, 5 and 6 PE students participated in an inspiring 'Fit it Forward' challenge set by the PE Department. Our goal was to use the power of education and our youth to inspire our community to stay healthy and safe in both body and mind.

Within this challenge, students worked really hard to perfect their own fundamental movements with the help of Ms O’ Shea’s informative virtual videos.

Ms O'Shea demonstrated in a number of video clips, how to execute the perfect squat, burpee, push up, lunge and plank technique. She reminded students of all the main teaching points and how to stay safe while performing these actions. Ms O’ Shea broke down each movement with a variety of challenges set to account for all capabilities.

Once the students had perfected their own movements, they were challenged to teach as many people in their households and communities as possible.

Students submitted their work to Seesaw to receive feedback from PE staff. The PE staff were delighted with so many excellent 'teachers in the making' and many were awarded certificates to recognise their accomplishments. Amazing videos were submitted of students teaching siblings as young as 2 years old as well as older siblings, parents, grandparents and friends.

Throughout this Fitness unit, the students were learning about functional movement and its importance in everyday life, regardless of age. Functional movement is the ability to move the body with proper muscle and joint function for effortless, pain-free movement. Learning how to be bio-mechanically efficient with everything you do, whether it is for sports and athletics, general fitness or daily life activities, is very important for maintaining good health and avoiding injury.

The PE Department are so proud of the incredible work of not only our students but also the support of their parents, families and wider communities in sharing within this project. We are so proud to see families coming together to show that maintaining correct form is something that we all need to bear in mind to stay healthy and active. We also received a lot of feedback to say that families had a lot of fun whilst completing these challenges.
