BISAC Season 2
Games start this week for BISAC Season 2 (U13/U15 Football, Varsity & JV Basketball, Varsity Rugby & Touch).
Changes in PE
We’ve made an exciting change to the way that we group the students in PE. This will allow them all to enjoy mixed ability and gender groups, as well as a broad range of activities throughout the year.
The students will be in one of 6 groups, selected alphabetically. This has mixed them up and gives them a chance to socialise with students who may not be in their tutor group. They will remain in these groups for the remainder of the year, with one teacher responsible for them.
They will then enjoy a range of activities including different invasion games (basketball, football, rugby for example); net games (e.g. badminton, volleyball); striking games (e.g. softball) and fitness activities.
The focus in PE will remain on students not only developing sport & activity specific skills, but also on a whole range of skills that will enable them to be lifelong learners. At the heart of all this is a hope that our students also develop a love of being active and healthy!
We haven’t forgotten Badminton! We’ll be having trials near the end of this term and will enter our teams into the TISAC tournaments later in the year. This will give us some good preparation time. We’ll have two training slots next term, so that we can split our squads up and give everyone more court time.
