P.E. Intent Statement

 

In PE we intend that our curriculum will allow the staff and pupils to:

 

            B                Challenge themselves and push their comfort zones in all physical activities. Try new sports and go beyond the                                                         boundaries of what they believe they are capable of.

 

             L                 Develop the skills, knowledge and habits needed to live a fulfilling, healthy life, making the most of their physical gifts                                          - “No one has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame to grow old without seeing the                                             beauty and strength of which the body is capable." Plato

            U                 Know that anyone can participate and achieve at sport no matter their race, gender, religion or disability. Everyone can and                                  should be able to access all P.E. lessons at a level appropriate to them.

P.E. Aims

 

In the P.E. curriculum pupils will cover a variety of units that allow them to experience a broad range of different sports and physical activities that allow them the chance to explore what their physical capabilities are and what they can achieve both individually and being part of a team.

Low stakes assessment throughout each unit will demonstrate the knowledge and skills acquired by the pupils, progressive vocabulary will be taught and revisited in units ensuring the pupils develop a bank of words and terminology to describe their physical activities.

 

We aim that children :

  • Have access to high quality PE lessons
  • Learn in a positive and safe environment
  • Are educated on the long-term health benefits of physical activity
  • Learn positive feedback around sport and fitness participation

ABCAgility refers to the ability of executing rapid changes in any direction. Balance refers to the ability of moving while remaining upright. Coordination, meanwhile, is the ability of using different body parts together in concert.

 

Invasion sports are team games in which the purpose is to invade the opponent’s territory while scoring points and keeping the opposing team's points to a minimum, and all within a defined time period. Hockey falls into this category

 

Net/wall games are activities in which players send an object towards a court or target area that an opponent is defending. Some examples include badminton, four square, pickleball, Spikeball, table tennis, and volleyball.  Here are three of our favorite net/wall games from around the world. 

 

Gymnastics is a sport that includes physical exercises requiring balance, strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, and endurance. The movements involved in gymnastics contribute to the development of the arms, legs, shoulders, back, chest, and abdominal muscle groups.

 

Throwing and catching skills are an important component of many games and activities played by students in the lower primary school. It is important that students in the early years of schooling be given many opportunities to develop these skills to prepare them for the games and sports they may play in the middle and upper primary years of school. Netball, softball, football, basketball and cricket are some of the games that require good skills in throwing and catching.

 

Striking and Fielding games are those in which one team can score points when a player strikes a ball (or similar object) and runs to designated playing areas while the other team attempts to retrieve the ball and return it to prevent their opponents from scoring.

 

Athletics is the sport of competing in track and field events, including running races and various competitions in jumping and throwing.
