Balanceability provides an accredited Foundation Stage 'Learn to Cycle' programme for Reception and Year 1 children (also starting with pre-school children from 2½ years).
The programme is designed to help children gain the confidence and skills required to ride a pedal bike independently, getting them off to the best start in cycling and assisting their ability to participate in Bikeability at a later stage in their school years.
Schools are able to get set up with Balanceability by buying a Balanceability Pack which includes all the equipment, programme materials and training in order to deliver the sessions as a sustainable programme. Balanceability can be run indoors or outdoors as part of the weekly regular PE activity, delivered by teachers and has been developed to fit into the school lesson planning.
Real PE and Real Gymnastics.
At Hazel Oak we follow the Real PE and Real Gym schemes as part of our PE curriculum.
The schemes are fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focus on the development of agility, balance and co-ordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning and aim to develop positive relationships with physical activity for life.
The work begins with the youngest pupils in school, who follow schemes tailored to the Early Years and Foundation Stage development goals and are delivered through stories and songs.
Students then continue to develop skills and abilities throughout school at levels appropriate to them until they begin the Entry Level Certificate in Physical Education in Key Stage 4.
The lessons link to 6 key abilities: creative, cognitive, health and fitness, physical, social and personal, which support development of the whole child and our own Values in school.
