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 trips.
