P.E

PE curriculum intent:

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.

Nelson Mandela

We all need to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Exercise is fundamental, as it allows children to function and complete everyday tasks, as well as improving their quality of life and life expectancy. Not only does being active reduce obesity and health risks later in life, it improves mental health through the release of endorphins and promotes social inclusion. The aim is to develop a lifelong interest in sport, either by committing to regular participation, showing a passion for sport or topic or showing effective teamwork to succeed in a game.

Through our PE curriculum, we cover a range of areas and sports. The areas of focus are:

  • Send and return
  • Attack, defend and shoot
  • Hit, catch and run
  • Run, jump and throw
  • Gymnastics and dance
  • Swimming
  • OAA

 The skills in each area are covered through a range of sports, including football, netball, dodgeball, hockey, tag rugby, tennis, javelin, discus, table tennis, rounders, cricket and athletics.

As well as teaching the children a range of sport skills, we also encourage leading an active lifestyle. We do this by taking part in the daily mile and also using the tool GoNoodle as a way to encourage being active.

Implementation

PE lessons are taught each week to build on progression of skills. Children will learn the skills, the basic rules of a game, and then the skills will be put into a game situation. Assessments are on-going throughout the year in the form of observations and analysis of performance.
