Learning Through Technology 2014 Conference


Ms Brand, Ms Chadwick, Yusef and Michal presented out Outdoor PE Project at the Learning Through Technology 2014 Conference on 29 April. From the evaluation responses we had very positive feedback.

Delegates said:

“Also enjoyed Lynn and Fiona and especially their pupils! Again inspiring to hear about what they have done in an “ordinary” school setting.”

“Again, very focused and engaging presentations, in particular […] the young pupils from Tollcross Primary. Excellent to hear from learners directly.”

“Great examples of putting ideas into practice and the two pupils from Tollcross were excellent – great to hear about their experiences first-hand.”

Outdoor PE Project – Update

P6/7 were out at the Canal Basin this morning to test the outdoor PE route they have designed. Some changes needed to be made and they hope to have the route ready soon. Kevin Brown, one of the lead officers in PE for the city, will be visiting Tollcross on Tuesday (16/4/13) to talk to P6/7 and to have a look at the PE route they have designed. This is a very exciting project which will benefit our school and local community.

Outdoor PE Project

IMG_0662Tollcross Primary was awarded £3000 from Education Scotland to develop core skills in P.E.  Our project involves setting up stations along the canal basin to develop core  skills, using QR codes to provide instructions. A QR  reader will be used to download the instructions to complete the course and a certificate will be available to download once the course is complete. Yesterday P6/7 pupils were out at the canal to find out how it is being used.
Pupils used a mind map to plan their ideas and are working with Ms Chadwick and Mr Devine to design and create a course to develop core PE skills. Follow our blog for further updates.

Exciting new PE Project at Tollcross

We have been successful in our application for funding from Education Scotland. The funding will enable us to develop a key project using technologies to develop and enhance core skills in PE. This will involve setting up an outdoor PE resource to be used by pupils, local families and local businesses with the aim of  encouraging a more active lifestyle while focusing on developing core skills in PE. This is a very exciting project and we will keep you updated with our progress.
