Physibets

ARENA – Launch of Physibets

An exciting new programme has been launched this week for pupils age 2 – 7. ‘Physibets’ is an innovative scheme which has been developed to help teach children phonics in their early years at school. The programme is delivered through dance and movement and has a number of characters that the children can associate with different letters and sounds. Older children who are learning more complex letters sounds can utilise the super-phonics programme which has 35 superheroes which they can work with to help visualise letter blends, and support pupils in their development of writing.

The programme has been developed by Michelle Tinkley creator of ‘Physibets’ who states ‘We aim to get children active, energised, focused and engaged in learning without them realising they are being taught’.

The programme was launched at Coads Green primary school with reception Year 1 and Year 2’s, in partnership with ARENA, the newly developed School Sport Partnership.

The children really enjoyed the session and were interested in the characters which have been developed as a result of the programme. Michelle Roberts Development Manager for ARENA said’ PE and School Sport has much to offer to children of all ages. Many of our children are kinaesthetic learners, who become disengaged in the classroom as they learn by getting involved and moving. They may excel in sport but struggle in the classroom. It is vital that we utilise PE and school sport to help raise standards in literacy and other curriculum areas. This programme provides a tool box of ideas which we hope will assist teachers both within the classroom and beyond’.

ARENA will now be working with Michelle Tinkley to train teachers and roll the programme out with schools and pre-schools in the local area.
