Healthy Active Lifestyles Curriculum

Statement

Subject Intent Statement:  What are you trying to achieve within this subject?

Healthy Active Lifestyles focusses on developing students’ knowledge of physical, mental and social well-being through physical literacy and sport. Our aim is that, by the time students leave school after Year 11, they will have a full understanding of how to be healthy and look after their bodies and minds to live a long, healthy and happy life.

Termly Overview

Year 7 Aut 1 Aut 2 Spr 1 Spr 2 Sum 1 Sum 2
TOPIC Knowledge development:Throughout the year, students will be equipped with the knowledge to develop their health and well-being so that they are able to live long, healthy and happy lives.In Year 7, 6 topics will be covered, with a focus on physical well-being. Students will understand:The physical, mental and social benefits of exerciseThe importance of safety in exerciseThe short term effects of exercise on the cardiovascular, respiratory and muscular systemsThe consequences of a sedentary lifestyleDiet and nutritionThe importance of fitness in everyday life
KNOWLEDGE TAUGHT
SKILLS DEVELOPED(Include any trips and visits.) Skill/tactical development: Throughout the year, students will be taught mostly core skills in sport as well as develop their knowledge and understanding of tactics and rules through a breadth of activities to find sports and activities that appeal to them and encourages lifelong participation. Students will be given the opportunity to assess their own and others’ performance. Sports may include, but not limited to:Striking/fielding (i.e. cricket/rounders/softball), Rugby, Football, Basketball, Alternative activities, Athletics, Fitness, Table tennis, Dance. 
ASSESSMENTS(Minimum two per half term, with focussed marking.) Summative assessment will occur in line with the trust assessment dates and will cover topics taught until that assessment, This will be reported home to parents.Formative assessment will take place at the end of each topic to assess the knowledge that has been learned. This will be done via a viva voce – oral assessment using Q&A to maximise time to be active in lessons will include questioning, feedback, progress checks against success criteria and learning intention and retrieval practice. This will be reported home to parents between summative assessments. Skills/tactics will only be assessed formatively via questioning, live feedback, progress checks against success criteria, retrieval practice and self/peer assessment of skill technique. 
HOME LEARNING(To be made available via Century Tech; one per week.) Before and after school clubs and competitions are made available to all students to develop skills/tactics further and show a commitment to their physical, mental and social well-being.Gifted and talented students are given links to local teams/clubs to develop their skills further. Staff can arrange this by liaising with clubs and parentsHomework set using GCSE Pod to consolidate HAL topics
SEQUENCING (What must students already have been taught in order to begin to learn this topic? Identify opportunities to address knowledge gaps) In primary school, students should have been taught the fundamentals of movement. I.e. how to run, jump etc. These skills provide the foundation to develop the skills required in the activities taught. It is important to note that students from different schools may have received different quality of physical education.Students may have learned the importance of health and well-being, but will most likely not have been taught how to lead a healthy lifestyle. Students will most probably have been kept safe through exercise through their teachers, rather than being proactively safe in exercise. To address this, each group will begin with ‘the importance of safety in exercise’ and ‘the physical, mental and social benefits of exercise’ topics as this will give them the foundations to succeed in HAL.
SCHEMAS (Where might students learn about elements of this topic in other subjects? Which subjects might this topic feed into beyond your own?) Links to science (mainly biology)Links to Maths (calculating)Links to English (oracy and meta language)Links to Food Technology (Diet & Nutrition)Links to Aspire (health and well-being) 
CAREERS LINKS(How might this benefit them in the future?) Healthy Active Lifestyles is a subject for all as it will benefit everyone, no matter what career path they take. If students are able to understand how to look after their bodies and minds, they will be able to stay healthy and happy in life. The knowledge learned will support any student who wants to pursue a career in health and well-being, such as nursing, nutrition and personal training. The skills learned will support any student who wants to pursue a career in sport, such as PE teaching, coaching, sports performer.

SEQUENCING (What must students already have been taught in order to begin to learn this topic? Identify opportunities to address knowledge gaps) In Year 7, students will have learned how to keep the body healthy and why physical well-being is so important. They will now develop knowledge on how to keep the mind healthy and why mental well-being is so important.Students will already know the importance of exercise in promoting happiness and reducing stress and depression. They will now develop techniques such as growth mind-sets, relaxation, mindfulness and mental imagery to stay healthy. Links will be made between sporting and academic performance and how using mental techniques used by sportspeople can be transferred into success in other areas of life.
