Gravenhurst Academy

Physical Education

Children have two lessons of PE each week. We use a variety of schemes and teacher’s own expertise to teach various different areas of PE. We aim to provide children with a variety of experiences which will develop their motor skills, make them aware of space and its use, allow them to move freely and expressively on their own and co-operate with others. Much of the early work will emphasize individual skill and technique, leading on to small game situations involving co-operation and competition. Basic Moves- a set of transferable skills useful in many different sports is taught as one of the PE sessions in Key Stage One. Swimming [A1] is taught in both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two for those children who cannot swim 25 metres. Outdoor and Adventurous Activities are catered for during the children’s residential trip to Bromham Campsite.
