PE Team in training before Foxes sport trips kick-off in October.

 

You can be forgiven for thinking the PE team at BSN have had a relaxed month with no Foxes sport trips to go on, or major inter-house events. However, that is not the case – we have been busy getting upskilled, developing our staff during this quiet period before our sport trips season gets starts after Golden Week.

At the beginning of September Mr. Plummer, Mr. Allen and Mr. Scott travelled to our sister school in Guangzhou, where PE teachers from Nord Anglia schools across China gathered to participate in a weekend-long training workshop. It was led by the UK Youth Sport trust, with expertise flown in from the UK to work with us.

Day 1 training activities were focused on building firm foundations and physical literacy for 4 to 7-year-olds, as well as the importance of movement in child development. We looked at how we can create an environment for children to explore and consolidate movement skills and how we develop the skills of locomotion, stability, and object control in a developmentally appropriate way. The groups continued during day 2 with activities concentrated on high-quality games teaching for KS2 and KS3 students, and how we can develop both the physical and decision-making skills essential for enjoyable and effective engagement in games.

We have already begun applying some of what we learned to our practice and lessons.

Towards the end of the month, we had more training, this time, in Shanghai. Five staff members attended a range of courses at Shanghai Community International School provided by Swim Australia, who had sent some of their finest teacher trainers and coaches to Shanghai to work with some Shanghai Swim League member schools. On Friday Mr Plummer, Allen and Scott participated in a Swim Australia swim teachers’ training course to become licensed Swim Australia learn to swim teachers. Ms Liu participated in a Swim Australia Babies and Toddlers course to help develop our Early Years swim program and with Mr Kamitsuka also joined a Swim Australia, Teacher of Competitive Swimming course. The experiences and courses were invaluable in developing our expertise, which will enable us to further refine our swimming provision over the coming year.

It’s not just been training for staff this month. This Saturday and Sunday also saw the launch of our new football provision:  Juventus Academy Nanjing at BSN. Nearly 170 children from BSN and our local community have joined up, and this weekend we kicked off the new autumn season with some glorious football weather.

We look forward to seeing our students and community continuing to enjoy sport and our lovely facilities throughout this term.
