In KS1, the focus is very much on developing the child’s fundamental movement skills of agility, balance and co-ordination, in a fun way whilst also giving them the knowledge and understanding of the effects of exercise on their bodies.
In KS2, the focus shifts to a more sports specific emphasis where the children apply their previous learning into adapted games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor adventure and swimming. Reflection on performance and their peer’s performance is also vital in developing their PE journey.
Every week, the previous lesson/s are recapped and then the children begin with a warm up and vigorous exercise to get them prepared for the main part of the lesson. This is followed by new skills being learnt, using them in small groups and then applying them in a more competitive game or performance. We will always then end the session with feedback from the children and a cool down.
Our aim is to develop well rounded children with lifelong love of sports and PE.
