We set home learning in PE because we want to enhance student learning. We want students to consolidate new learning by investigating topics further and applying skills, concepts, and experiences from lessons to the home learning activities. We also want students to be able to apply knowledge and understanding of different topic areas to practical sporting contexts, this will enable students to make more rapid progress through the building on and cementing of topic knowledge.
In PE, we expect home learning to be independently completed and presented to the best of the student’s ability. Students are expected to meet all deadlines set by the PE teacher. If there are any concerns about deadlines not being met or homework tasks not being understood, it is the student’s responsibility to seek the advice of their PE teacher prior to the deadline being missed.
