What’s happening in PE? – Golf and technology

During Core PE lessons a number of Year 11 students have had the opportunity to learn new skills outside of the school environment. For up to six weeks the students are attending coaching sessions at our local golf club, Hunley Hotel and Golf Club. Experiencing teeing off on the actual golf course and practising their golf swing on the driving range, is enabling students to learn a whole new sport. Coached by members of staff from the golf club, this has been funded by Sport Academy. The Year 11 students involved are loving it and think it is great to do something different, especially as it’s a sport they have never tried before!

Also happening in the Sport and Health faculty… Year 7 PE students have been using technology to analyse each other’s performances. Using iPads they have been able to record each other’s movements and watch them back to analyse them. From this students have seen what they need to do to improve on their weaknesses and have been working hard to better their performances.
