Physical Education

The Aims

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.

Prior Learning- Early Years

Children will be given frequent opportunities to be active and move in different ways, for example, running, jumping, balancing and playing with balls. The children have constant access to resources which help them to develop their physical skills. In the classroom and outdoors, there are opportunities to construct with large scale resources, balance on planks and beams and experiment with moving in different ways. The Reception outdoor area is currently being developed to enhance the current physical opportunities. In addition to this, children in Reception have P.E. sessions each week. We use the Write Dance Programme, Dough Disco and Squiggle while you Wiggle resources to develop gross and fine motor skills through music and dance.

By the end of the Early Years Curriculum, children are expected to

  • Show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements
  • Move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space.
  • Handle equipment and tools effectively

Key Stage One

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

By end of Key Stage One, children are expected to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Key Stage Two

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 movement. 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 own success.

By the end of Key Stage Two (Year 6), Children are expected to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
