In our school, we ensure all children have access to high quality, engaging PE sessions, wider sporting opportunities, and encourage an enjoyment and value for all sports. To develop the whole child socially, emotionally and physically and give them the skills to make healthy lifestyle choices in the future.
Across the school we really enjoy PE! We passionately believe in the importance of developing 'Sport and Healthy Lifestyles' amongst our children and local community. Throughout the year we will develop these through a range of sporting activities including games, gymnastics, movement and athletics. '5 a Day' and 'Wakey Shakey' are classroom based exercises we also like to do too!
With a large proportion of the Government PE Funding we have received, staff work with Mr Dave, using his expertise to inspire and develop their skills. This ensures high quality PE for our children and build staff confidence in the delivery of PE.
We have been seeking information from our families about clubs the children currently attend out of school, in order for us to make links with the local community. Mr Dave is building up links with providers in the local area and it is fantastic hearing that so many of our children are attending Nelson Football Club and Seedhill Athletics Track.
Learning in P.E
In athletics we explore running. We focus on speed, changing direction, following different pathways and running round and over a variety of obstacles. We also enjoy testing different take offs and landings we have use when participating in relay races. Additionally we have lots of fun learning about different exciting equipment such as the javelin, hurdles and discus.
In games we explore simple tactics for attacking and defending. We develop our spatial awareness skills, working on our reactions and changing direction. Alongside this we learn the rules and roles of the games. We participate in a variety of games such as hockey, basketball, football and cricket.
In gymnastics we learn all about different rolls, travels and turns. As a gymnast we know that you always have to be smart, so we work very hard on our control and body position during each movement we make. We work towards creating a three step sequence with a clear beginning, middle and end.
We run daily before and after school sports clubs. Click the link below to find out more.
