On Thursday, Miss Bowers created a high energy fitness circuit with a focus on cardio.
The impact of physical education on young people’s mental health has been widely researched and has produced some profound findings. We know that physical activity reduces mental fatigue, increases motivation, lowers our risk of depression and enables children to express themselves through movement.
As well as this, it gives children the opportunity to work with others, understand how their strengths can impact a team and empower them to make decisions with confidence and the work we at Parkside do for our children is a proud moment for me as PE lead.
I believe Parkside is blazing a trail in providing opportunities for young people to take part in physical education and offer a well-rounded, holistic approach to mental health. By offering children the chance to take part in PE, take part in competitive sports both in and out of school we are providing them with sustainable and healthy skills that they can continue to use for years after their education.
Moki Health Bands: The children are continuing to become more active and have entered the top 15% of Moki Schools.
