Mrs Wilson and Mrs Rendle are our Forest School leaders; they're well qualified in Forest School and are both passionate about ensuring all of our children have high quality forest school opportunities throughout the year and learn new skills that they can apply to their learning and life in general - as well as learn lots about themselves, each other and nature.
Over lockdown during COVID 19 we began to bring our Forest School on-site and started to develop our own garden and forest school area: Anita's Garden.
Here you can find a fire pit, pond, our own mini-Minack amphitheatre, vegetable patches, mini-wildflower meadow and a variety of trees being grown. We have developed it all ourselves with the help of our children, so it is a real legacy project for them.
Every class carries out Forest School sessions for half a term each on rotation and at the end of the year we group our children in their house teams so they can experience Forest School with children in different classes throughout the school.
We are really proud of how we develop children's physical education at St Buryan Academy. We commit to the National Curriculum expectations but also hold days throughout the year to develop the children's PE experiences further by holding 'Believe, Achieve, Aspire' days where we invite sports specialists in to work with our children.
We have formed strong links with our local sports clubs, such as Penzance Tennis Club and regularly have them in for taster sessions and more.
We recently won 'Chance 2 Shine's School of the Month' after developing our cricket skills.
We are really proud to swim weekly all year round, surpassing the expectations set upon us. We consistently meet the expectation of all children to swim 25meters before the end of their time with us.
You can find out more about our Physical Education at St Buryan Academy in the Subject Overview section.
The first document shows you how we assess PE and the progression of skills through the year groups. Every half term our PE teachers assess the children within their PE assessment booklet, this goes through the school with them so children can see the journey the take with their Physical Literacy and Education.
We have worked hard to develop our PE curriculum and offer lately and aim to continue with this!
