Teachers at many schools are often required to lead physical education for their class. Our Fun with Fitness professional development day provides an opportunity for teachers and school staff to develop knowledge and skills in developing the physical health and well-being of their children.
Your "Fun with Fitness" professional development day delivers the following benefits to your teachers and your students:
|0900 - 0930||Understanding Fitness||A personal review of beliefs, values and views of health & fitness.|
|0930 - 1000||Fun with Fitness Facts||This session provides participants an introduction to the effective development of physically focussed games for kids. Participants will gain an understanding of the theory around physiology, children centred activities, game development.|
|1000 - 1015||Morning Tea|
|1015 - 1115||Fun with fitness outdoors||Participants will explore through action what works for kids in the realm of cardiovascular, upper and lower body strength and coordination.|
|1115 - 1145||Almost Anything Goes||This creative team based activity draws on the insights from previous sessions in a stimulating and challenging way.
Participants will put into practice the fun with fitness lessons.
|1145 - 1200||Reflections and Insights||Final reflections as to how to apply the insights drawn from the day.|
We can extend this to a full day and are can tailor your program to suit your needs. All workshop participants receive a complementary workbook that contains a variety of ideas, activities and games for putting fun into fitness.
Some of the key aspects of team building include trust, accessing individual strengths and communicating effectively. A professional development day focussed on building team based skills such as communication, creativity, process, recognition of strengths provides an opportunity for your staff to start the process of team formation necessary to achieve school outcomes. Based on around Tuckman's research into team development, your team building day uses reflective, experiential and fun activities to create an environment for your team to grow and learn together. We work closely with you to develop a program that meets your needs in this area.
