AIMS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AT Futures Institute

At Futures Institute we believe that the Physical Education Programme should be broad, balanced and provide for all individual needs, promoting a healthy lifestyle and lifelong involvement in being active.

Physical Education at Futures aims to develop the whole person physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and aesthetically. We believe it should allow the opportunity to play, perform and evaluate theirs and others’ performance in a safe and enjoyable environment.

What are we studying?

During the year, pupils will be given the opportunity to experience the following activities:

Football –In this unit, pupils will focus on ball familiarisation and moving with the ball, passing and receiving, defending and defensive tactics, attacking principles of play, shooting and small-sided game play. Pupils will also get to experience competitive match opportunities through our extra curricular provision.

 Rugby –This unit of work focuses on evasive running, passing and receiving, tackling, attacking principles of play, rucking and mauling, kicking and small sided competitive game play. Through the Rugby unit, we also look to instil and develop some brilliant core values in our pupils including teamwork, sportsmanship and discipline. This unit can also be adapted to tag rugby for the mixed groups.

Netball – Netball is a fast paced and highly competitive sport. During this unit pupils will explore and develop the skills of ball handling, identifying space, movement, attacking principles of play, defensive principles, positional play and competitive game play.

Hockey –This unit will focus on dribbling, passing and receiving, tackling, attacking principles of play, defensive principles, identifying and exploiting space, shooting and small-sided competitive game play.

Basketball – Basketball requires real hand eye coordination and the skills learnt in this unit will transfer to a number of other sports. The unit will focus on dribbling, passing and receiving, shooting, defending, laws of the game and small-sided competitive game play.

Health Related Fitness –The HRF unit will focus on learning independent warming up, cardiovascular training, circuit training, stretching and flexibility, interval training, fartlek training, plyometrics and Yoga.

Badminton – Badminton is a fast-paced activity and one where our pupils develop and improve quickly. The Badminton unit at Futures will focus on grip and court position, overhead and underhand clear, drop shots, the smash shot, serving, singles and doubles tactics and competitive match play.

Rounders – Co-ordination and teamwork are at the heart of what we do at the beginning of the summer term. The Rounders unit at will focus on the core skills of throwing, catching, bowling and striking as well as the  thinking skills around fielding roles and positions, tactics and competitive game play.

Athletics – Our Athletics unit will cover a range of different events across multiple disciplines. The unit will focus on sprinting, pacing for middle and long distance, jumping (long jump and triple jump), javelin, relay and finish with competitive Olympic style competitions. We have lots of opportunity for inter school athletics fixtures both outside on the track and indoor.

OAA – This outdoor education unit involves plenty of opportunities for pupils to work together as a team in order to complete team and individual challenges. The focus for the unit is to provide challenges and opportunities for pupils to problem solve in real time and work towards a common goal.

Other Sports – This year we are also looking at providing some new opportunities for our pupils in a range of sports. These include Handball, Tchoukball and Tennis.
