Physical Education

National Curriculum: PE

 

 

The children will receive physical education through exploring their physical environment and developing their bodily co-ordination and motor skills. The emphasis is put upon exploration and creative co-ordination in movement. PE is broadly divided into four strands:

Games –which include ball skills and ball games in Key Stage 1, and in Key Stage 2 football, rugby, netball, hockey, cricket, basket ball, volley ball, tennis and rounders.
Gymnastics – involves developing skills on the floor and apparatus.
Dance – a variety of themes are taught, some linking with other subjects, others taught as discrete dance projects.

Outdoor and Adventurous Activities – this element of the curriculum is largely covered by two residential visits that take place in Years 4 and 6.

In Key Stage 2 athletics is taught. There are opportunities for extra curricular teaching in football, netball, hockey, cricket, rugby and basket ball. In years 3 /4 swimming is taught. It is also available to those children in Year 5 and 6 who have not achieved their 25 metre certificate. Parents should note that there is a request for a voluntary donation to cover the cost of pool fees and transport. However, no child is excluded on grounds of cost.
