Physical Education (PE)
PE Lead: Kim Chambers
Deputy PE Lead: Jon Aaron
Physical Education is part of the school curriculum used to provide opportunities for all pupils to become more physically able and to support their health and fitness. PE provides opportunities for children to take part in competitive and non-competitive games which develops teamwork, leadership skills as well as speaking and listening.
The aim of PE is to educate our children on how to lead a healthy and active life, engage in physical activity for a sustained period of time and to develop competence in a broad range of physical activities.
In KS1 the main areas taught are:
- Movement skills
In KS2 the main areas taught are:
- Invasion games
- Striking and fielding
- Net and wall
- OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activities)
Children engage in two PE lessons each week, one lesson taught by the PE Specialist Teacher, Jon Aaron, and the second lesson taught either by the class teacher or by an external coach.
Our PE curriculum content follows the ‘Primary PE Passport’ ensuring a clear progression of skills within and across year groups.
- Warm up – a short game which introduces the lesson objective.
- Main session – 1 or more structured activities to develop the lesson objective.
- Game based learning – a game which embeds the lesson objective.
- Conclusion – time for the children to reflect on what they have learnt.
- Black shorts/leggings/tracksuit
- White T-shirt
Children are encouraged to change into their PE kit for every PE lesson in the classroom and are encouraged to remove shoes and socks for dance and gymnastics lessons.
