Physical Education

Physical Education
We aim to develop physical competence in all children, through enjoyment, teaching them to value the benefit of physical activity in life and to promote their own development.

The New National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
·         develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
·         are physically active for sustained periods of time
·         engage in competitive sports and activities
·         lead healthy and active lives.

The aims for teaching PE in Key Stage 1 are to:
·         master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities.
·         participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
·         perform dances using simple movement patterns.

The aims for teaching PE in Key Stage 2 are to:
·         use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
·         play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton,  basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic  principles suitable for attacking and defending
·        develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
·         perform dances using a range of movement patterns
·         take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
·         compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
Our P.E. and sports programme includes gymnastics, athletics, movement and dance, team games of football, netball, rounders, cricket, hockey, tag rugby and orienteering skills. Outdoor and adventurous activities are available to older children as part of our residential experience. We also take part in local and area competitions in football, netball, rounders, cricket, swimming, cross country running, tennis, tag rugby and athletics.

We hold a sports day every Summer term, which is organised as a house competition. Every child in the school takes part in this event.
