Physical Education

Here at Canovee National School each class receives at least one hour of P.E. every week. Our P.E. classes are made up of the six strands of the P.E. curriculum. Throughout the year we take part in:

· Athletics

· Gymnastics

· Games

· Dance

· Outdoor and adventure activities

· Aquatics

We have a basketball court, a multipurpose enclosed playing court with built in goal frames, two playing yards, a green playing area and a green playing pitch all on our school grounds! We have a school hall which is an excellent facility especially on rainy days and during the winter months.

Canovee National School has always appreciated the importance of P.E. as a very important school subject and we follow a P.E. plan and policy. Our school yearly plan ensures that each teacher is teaching at least five different strands of the PE curriculum each year. All classes receive one hour of timetabled PE each week. This year we have chosen to focus on the PE strand ‘Games’. All class teachers have agreed to prioritise the stand this year. Collaborative planning and reflection of our PE lessons has proven to be beneficial, informative and educational for our staff, pupils and parents as a whole.
