At Hillstone Primary school we believe that a child, who is physically active, is a happier child. The early years of a child's life builds the paving blocks to fundamental skills for future activity, developing agility, balance, coordination and sport specific skills. Sport and Physical Education promotes health and exercise and means our children will be more likely to be active adults. Not only does sport have physical benefits but it also develops their social attributes, improving their confidence, teamwork and communication skills. Sport helps to install a 'growth mind set' in children, helping them to deal with failure and mistakes and to understand that these are needed to improve and should be celebrated. Sport gives children a practical way of experiencing this.
PE from home
With the world not quite back to normal as of yet and some children and families having to isolate at home, we want our pupils to keep as active as possible. To do this we have created a virtual web page in which coach has put together some videos in which fun activities can be done at home, using items you may have around your home. Don't worry if you don't have sports equipment at home, or even if you don't have much space. All activities can be adapted to suit your home. Challenges and other useful resources will also be added to help inspire you through this strange time in our life.
