All children have 2 physical education lessons each week in which they are taught the aspects of the National Curriculum. At key stage two the National Curriculum states that: “Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movements. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their success”.
Over the academic year children engage in a number of team and individual sports. Skills and knowledge are progressively planned for. Within the sessions there is a focus on competitive sport. Throughout all the sessions, children are encouraged to challenge themselves to compete to achieve their personal best.
Swimming is a passion of ours. Children are taught in year 3 and year 5. All children are assessed and receive top up swimming tuition in order to aid them to swim 25m and beyond. All children swim in year 5 regardless of ability. Basic self-rescue skills are taught as part of these lessons in the water, supported by theory sessions in PSHE.
