A recent survey showed that the obesity rate of primary school students in Liuxin Town, Huaihai International Port District, Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province was 1.87% and the myopia rate was 13.19%, which is about 1/5 and 1/3 of the national survey data. A reporter from China Youth Daily and China Youth Daily learned in a local interview recently that starting with the development of hula hoop activities, the nine elementary schools in Liuxin Town put sports in an important position and carried out various sports activities in accordance with local conditions, not only the physical fitness of students. Significantly strengthened, and sports has become one of the carriers of quality education, "sports and education integration" here is both the goal and the result.

According to a recent survey on the physical fitness of more than 1.15 million students in schools across the country, the obesity rate of primary and secondary school students in my country has exceeded 10%, and the obesity rate of children in younger age groups is higher; and the 2018 survey by the Ministry of Education The results show that the myopia rate of primary school students is 36.0%, the myopia rate of junior high school students is 71.6%, and the myopia rate of high school students is 81.0%. The high rates of obesity and myopia are an obvious sign of the worrying health of our students.

In Liuxin Town, Huaihai International Port District, Xuzhou City, the obesity rate and myopia rate of primary school students are far lower than the national survey data. This is directly related to the importance of sports in the 9 primary schools in Liuxin Town. Fan Kongliang, principal of the Liuxin Town Primary School Central School, believes that children’s physical fitness ranks first in education. "Where can we educate if our health is insecure? Therefore, as the central school of Liuxin Town, we will do a good job of taking children’s physical fitness as the basis for education. The top-level design of the “first place” guides 9 primary schools in the town to carry out various school sports activities with their own characteristics."

Among them, the Liuxin Experimental Primary School, which has a leading and exemplary role among the 9 primary schools in the town, has become a scene of local sceneries with the hula hoops, dances and games created by the physical education teacher Jiang Xiu over the past 20 years. Hula hoops are cheap and durable, and will not bring economic burden to ordinary families. Small hula hoops are not just a "shaking" entertainment tool for children. It also combines a variety of physical fitness training methods and team cooperation requirements to become An important means of sports people.

On May 13, the reporter saw the school’s hula hoop exercises, dances, and games at Liuxin Experimental Primary School. The hula hoops were transformed into auxiliary props for children to exercise and play games. According to Jiang Xiu, the current hula created by her There are 3 sets of lap exercises, two sets of group dances, 186 kinds of games, and 36 kinds of hoops. She said, “These hula hoop activities are first to make children happy and relieve stress, let them play and laugh, before they achieve the effect of exercise. , First to make children happy; secondly, it is the purpose of education, including improving children's physical quality, such as flexibility, agility, balance, speed, coordination, strength, etc., but also improving children's psychological and spiritual qualities, such as self-confidence, Self-reliance, self-reliance, bravery, and tenacity. In the process of hula hoop exercises, dances, and games, guide and encourage children to actively participate, unite and help each other, and make progress together, regardless of personal gains or losses."

Han Qiuhong, a course instructor and researcher of the Xuzhou City Education and Teaching Research Office, commented, "Hula hoop is just a medium to implement the physical education standards."

As a scholar who has investigated many teaching activities at the grassroots level, Han Qiuhong’s feeling is that the hula hoop is not simply a club activity in this school, but an advanced type of activity based on the children’s low, middle, and high grades. Design, and this advanced design is not purely based on the skills of the hula hoop, but is guided by the physical literacy development requirements of pupils of different grades in the physical education standard, and integrate it into the activities of the hula hoop.

The hula hoop activity has been extended in Liuxin Experimental Primary School. At the teaching demonstration activity on May 13, the children of Liuxin Experimental Primary School tried to build an 8-story human tower, which is currently the highest in the country, and related videos quickly spread across the Internet.

Building human towers is a great test of children's strength, courage and teamwork ability. In Japan, where school sports are well-developed, building towers is almost a repertoire of major sports activities in all schools, and it is the best embodiment of the physical fitness and cooperation ability of a school’s students. According to Jiang Xiu, due to long-term participation in sports activities, the students of Liuxin Experimental Primary School have excellent physical fitness and teamwork. They have only tried three times to build an 8-story tower and succeeded. "Our students have been successful since the first and second grades. Started to participate in the construction of the human tower. Students in grades 1 and 2 tried to build two floors, students in grades 3 and 4 tried to build 3 floors, and students in grades 5 and 6 tried to build 4 floors. Our students tried to build 6 floors of human towers very early. About 5 months ago, another 7-story tower was successfully built. The children have strong arms and legs, so we can successfully complete the 8-story tower without ensuring the safety of students."

When the 8-story tower was completed, the children embraced each other excitedly. The parents watching from the sidelines clapped their hands for the children. One parent said: “Before I thought that physical education was for children to exercise, but through exercises, My self-confidence has increased, and I have also learned to get along with my classmates better. I also have a deeper understanding of sports. I raise my hands to support the school’s emphasis on sports."

Fan Kongliang recalled that the importance of physical education in these nine primary schools in Liuxin Town had caused some parents’ incomprehension. “The common people value the quality of teaching, that is, the results of major subjects such as Chinese, mathematics, and English. Some parents think that we should take physical education seriously. Our attention is used in the main class, which puts us under a lot of pressure."

Fan Kongliang said that some principals in these 9 elementary schools did not understand the importance of physical education, "but we still adhere to the concept of putting children’s healthy growth first, and continue to work in parent meetings, principals’ meetings, and head teachers’ meetings. , Emphasizing the importance of sports, so that parents, principals, and teachers can see the changes in their children. Up to now, our work is still being explored and in progress."

The small hula hoop has been spinning in Liuxin Town for 20 years. Today, 9 elementary schools have different sports activities, such as basketball, football, volleyball, rope skipping, hockey and so on.

"In these schools, sports activities have risen to the height of campus culture, which gives sports the power to take root on campus." Han Qiuhong said, "How does sports respond to campus culture? I think that sports is not simply a subject in school. It should be a unique cultural phenomenon in a school. For example, when we walked into Liuxin Experimental Primary School, we saw not only the scenery of the school, but the school through sports. The activities have inspired the vitality of children's lives, and the whole school is permeated with this kind of enthusiasm, which makes us feel the weight and roots of sports here."

At a time when school physical education is generally in a weak position, the principal’s awareness and emphasis on physical education undoubtedly determines the status of physical education in a school, but there must be dedicated and professional physical education teachers. Han Qiuhong said, “A few years ago, we thought that curriculum is the most important for students to develop. So at that time, we thought curriculum reform was a key link in education development. But now, we put forward the idea of'teacher first'. Why? ?Because if there is no improvement in teachers' teaching design ability, there will be no way to let our good courses land."

In Liuxin Experimental Primary School, a school in the junction of urban and rural areas, Jiang Xiu has been a physical education teacher for more than 20 years. The development of hula hoop activities has led to positive changes in the school and the entire Liuxin Town Primary School. During the same period, Jiang Xiu also faced Through various incomprehension and grievances. However, it is precisely because of the persistence of such an ordinary rural physical education teacher that school physical education will show its proper appearance here.
