Morag Young and Morag Simpson, Physical Education Lead Officers from Falkirk Council Curriculum Support Team organised a Gymnastics twilight for primary class teachers and specialists. This course was led by Anne Murphy, from Education Scotland. Anne demonstrated how to provide a progressive Gymnastics programme focussing on the Significant Aspects of Learning in PE from Early Level through to Second Level. This was a practical course and participants were very impressed by the way in which the course was delivered in an extremely inclusive manner. Course participants were able to identify that this method of teaching Gymnastics would ensure a positive learning experience for all.
Examples of the very positive feedback are shown below.
“Better quality lessons and learning experience for the children”
“I think my learners will have a more positive and richer learning experience”
“more valuable experience for all the children especially those who are not so confident in this area”
