A review of current skills and a focus on sequencing and vaulting.



This workshop will firstly review and revise the skills associated with rolling, weight transference and balance. 

It will then move on to explore the concept of 'vaulting'.  The teaching points of vaulting and landing will be addressed with a focus on how to easily incorporate these skills into a gymnastics class.

All of this will be done through an overarching theme of sequencing and performance.

Post-primary workshop for PE teachers.

Assessing Students Fundamental Movement Skills in PE.

Venue: Creagh College, Gorey

Date: Monday 25th April 2016

Time: 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm 

Presenter: Emma Bunworth

This workshop will provide teachers with the tools to assess their student’s fundamental movement skills, what areas of movement they are excelling in, and what areas may need further attention. Using six norm reference tests which are easily administered through peer assessment, this lesson will not only help the teacher develop a profile on their students, but also help them to gather the necessary information to plan for future learning. The session will involve use of IT in the P.E. class and provide an overview of some useful apps to use in class.


If teachers have an Ipad or tablet it is advised that they bring it along to make the most of the session.

Booking procedure:

Please select Health&Wellbeing from the drop down subject list.
