On Thursday 14th March 2019, Mr Townend took some of our KS3 pupils to participate in a boxing session as part of their weekly PE lesson. The pupils all listened well and fully engaged in the activities.

 

Why is boxing an effect PE activity?

‘Boxing, encourages students to be physically active for sustained periods of time and improves their fitness for competitive sports. Boxing is fantastic for developing speed, stamina and strength, and is a great way to engage previously inactive youngsters. Training for the ring teaches self-discipline, commitment and concentration, building confidence and acting as a safe outlet for aggression.’ (https://www.teachsecondary.com/sport/view/lesson-plan-ks3-4-pe-boxing-for-fitness)
