PE  September 2016

In Physical Education children learn a range of sporting skills; they learn that being active is fun and that it is important to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. 

All phases across school will be using a scheme of work called “Real PE” during their Indoor PE Sessions. This gives the children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life. For more information about this scheme please visit the following website link:http://www.createdevelopment.co.uk/solutions/real-pe/

Foundation stage: Learn and explore basic movement skills through daily and regular supervised indoor and outdoor play. The children also have one taught Physical Education lesson per week developing their fundamental movement skills.

Key Stage One and Two have two hours of timetabled Physical Education per week; one indoor and one outdoor.

Key Stage One: The children continue to develop their fundamental movement skills and start to learn small sided games based on traditional games such as netball and rugby. 

Key Stage Two: In addition to those taught earlier, students also have lessons in swimming. They continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate their own successes.

Where the opportunities arise; specific Physical Education learning will take place linked to a topic being learnt across a half term.

Across each school year the children are now beginning to take part in a range of inter-form and whole school sporting competitions and events.
