P.E

The National Curriculum focuses on children being able to develop their agility, balance and co-ordination (ABC).  From EYFS to year 3 the curriculum focuses on children being able to improve their agility balance and coordination by completing simple/basic movements and then stringing them together (routine). Also in the early years of school, the curriculum focuses on skill progression through basic sending and throwing.

 

In Years 4 to 6 the expectation is that all children should be able to apply the skills learnt through sending and throwing in their early years and transfer these skills to an invasion or striking game.  They are also expected to officiate games and events to show a deeper understanding of rules and sportsmanship which allows them to receive feedback not just from their teachers but from their peers also.  Every year develops their core athletic skills right the way up from EYFS to Year 6.

 

Through the games children are taught to observe the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators.

 

Children take part in games, gymnastics, dance and athletics using the indoor and outdoor environment where appropriate. Children currently swim in Year 4 and receive ‘top up swimming’ in Years 5 and 6 where possible (so that all children are able to swim at least 25 metres by the end of Key Stage 2).

 

Children also take part in a variety of after school sports clubs and have many opportunities to compete against other local schools.
