Here at Scoil Iósaf we try to adopt a multi sensory approach to teaching where the children use all their senses to learn. Physical activity plays a large part in this. The child who associates fun and enjoyment with practical and physical lessons gains an appreciation for staying active whilst also learning at the same time.
Children who are active throughout the day tend to concentrate more, are more productive and have fun while learning new skills. Our approach is very much child centered and inclusive of all children with varying abilities.
We are aiming to have a whole school plan in place where all classes will be doing the same P.E. strands at the same time throughout the year. We will feel this will benefit the children from all ages. Physical Education is very important to s and we try and integrate this across all curricular areas where possible!
