P.E at Green End
and at our other Trust Schools
Games is all about developing physical skills and later applying these to sport
All games lessons will be inclusive, fun and accessible to all, encouraging all children to be active and healthy throughout their lives.
Gymnastics supports children to develop discipline, balance, core strength and creativity through both floor work and using the apparatus safely. All gymnastics lessons will be inclusive and accessible to all, encouraging all children to be active and healthy throughout their lives.
PE is considered one of the most important parts of children’s learning from EYFS to Year 6. We prioritise PE as we know how important exercise is to prepare children for their future life. Each year group devotes at least 2 hours each week to physical development encompassing games, gymnastics, dance and developing fitness.
The Strands of PE
Your Personal Best 'YPB'
Challenging yourself in HIIT, running and skipping. The focus is on being the best you can be, monitoring your own progression and effort levels to improve your fitness.
The aim is for children to understand that a healthy body helps support a healthy mind.
We are celebrating the amazing achievements of our children- we are so proud of their hard work developing their fitness to run a mile! When the children can run a full mile (half in year 1) they challenge themselves to run it faster!
In EYFS and KS1, games lessons focus on developing fundamental movement skills which are required to play sports such as throwing and catching.
In KS2 these skills are applied to a variety of sports so that children develop knowledge and understanding of rules and competitive sporting situations
Children develop and build on the core skills for gymnastics of jumps, balances, rolls and holding weight in different ways for example on hands in upper KS2
Our Sports Leaders
Our sports leaders help children develop their skills in PE during lunchtimes and in PE lessons. They are great role models for the children and we are so proud of them!
Pupils recall knowledge by revisiting the key fundamental movement skills on a weekly basis in EYFS and KS1 and then applying these skills in KS2.
The model of “I do, We do, You do” and “Know it, Show it” is used across school to support the development of skills
Rules, strategies and tactics
Our school rules are taught from the first day of school. This understanding provides the foundation for children to make their own rules
Later, sporting rules are taught and explored through a variety of sports. These sports are repeated bi-annually so children can develop deeper understanding of the rules, strategies and tactics of different games.
After school clubs and competitions are also linked with games lessons to ensure children have opportunities to compete against on another as well as develop their skills.
At the Kingsway trust, our curriculum is applied to inter trust sporting competitions. These opportunities give children the chance to develop competitiveness, sportsmanship and further their sporting skills. Some children have the opportunity to referee and become leaders in the sports.
