Our vision is to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Key Stage 2 pupils are taught to:
- Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
- Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
- Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
- Perform dances using a range of movement patterns
- Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
- Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
- Pupils will attend swimming lessons in year 5
A broad and balanced PE curriculum is delivered to provide the best opportunity for all pupils to lead active, healthy lifestyles. Within Key Stage 2 all pupils receive at least one lesson per week with a specialist physical education teacher. This enables subject specific expertise in developing motor skills together with a progressive introduction for pupils into competitive sports. Opportunity to participate and compete is evident throughout the curriculum.
