The PE curriculum is varied and carefully planned that all children learn a range of sports and physical skills. Every term or half term the focus of PE differs allowing children to succeed in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Children will learn hand-eye coordination, body movement control, handling and controlling different sporting equipment. The PE curriculum has been planned so that skills and knowledge gained are built upon each year.
In EYFS children develop spatial awareness, balance and control through a variety of opportunities. In KS1 children are taught fundamental movement skills including running, jumping, throwing and catching. They will participate in team games and perform dance using simple movement patterns. In KS2 children will be taught to apply and develop a broader range of skills including those from KS1 in isolation and in combination. They will participate in competitive games, develop flexibility, strength, control and balance through athletics and gymnastics. Children will perform dances using a range of patterns, comparing their performances. Children will also take part in outdoor education activity both on and off site.
As a result of this learning children develop a keen interest in PE and willingness to participate in sport and encourage others to do so. Children have a good level of physical fitness, know how to lead a healthy lifestyle and their well being is good. Children will develop the ability to become young leaders and active adults.develop the ability to become young leaders and active adults.
