Athletics competition (Finland)

We had our athletics competition on our school a few weeks ago. The sports you got to choose from were for example running for 60 or 600 meters, long jump, high jump and shot put. When the day started, all of us had our warm up together, and then it was time for the sports. 

Every sport we did on the day was outside except for high jump, and it was competed on the gymnasium. The day was also a tryout to the final competition between schools in Oulu, and everyone who got to first or second place in any sport has the chance to go and represent our school on the big competition between the schools in a bigger sports stadium, near the center of Oulu. 

Even though there was a chance of getting to the bigger competition, the day was not supposed to take that seriously witch was really nice, and it made the sports enjoyable. On the next week after the competition, there was a distribution of prizes on our gymnasium, and the winners got medals. 

Overall, I think that the day was successful, and it was fun!

Annual sports day (Sweden)

Every year in June we have a day with many sports at Bäckskolan. This year our students were divided in 20 country-teams, after all the nations we have in our school and in the project.

During the day the teams played football, tried out athletics and hade various games. After so much motion all students and teachers were really hungry and the food was very appreciated.

Harry Potter inspired data handling! (Wales)

The children in Year 5 (ages 9 and 10) had to work in groups to try out different positions in a game of Quidditch. They created, collected and then interpreted the data. Children then worked as a team to decide which position best suited each member.

Sharing the joy of movement!

Run, jump, learn! partner schools had a photo competition recently. The children took photos of each other moving. Each photo had to have at least three children moving. Each school then chose and rewarded the school winners. Here are the winning photos for you to enjoy!

Snowballfight and Kingsprom

Germany

Here you can find ideas for cool PE lessons. These are three games we regularly play in Physical Education.

It’s really cold outside, but sadly we have no snow. So we play a game called snowball fight in our gym.

Two teams have a certain amount of movable equipment that they can arrange to protect their group at the beginning of the lesson. Afterwards the snowballfight beginns. The children have lots of fun, throwing, catching and hiding… (like dodge ball).

The second game is a steeplechase. Four teams try to master the obstacle course in two minutes.

The third game is called Kingsprom. The king is sitting on his throne and his subjects throw „golden coins“ to him. After each successful throw and catch the king moves his throne a step backwards. The winning team is the one whos king is the first at the last marking.
