Our Key Stage 1 Physical Education curriculum focuses on the development of the children’s fundamental movement skills (FMS) (agility, balance and co-ordination). These skills are developed through a variety of progressive and fun games, beginning with individual development and progressing to work/perform with others. Examples of how our FMS programme develops the core skills include:

Agility – moving in different ways/direction, moving around pathways or obstacles set out by the children using a range of PE equipment. Towards the end of KS1 children begin to work on evading classmates, where tag games form a key part of PE lessons. Ensuring children learn how to judge the space they are working in, and be aware of others moving around them is also a key focus.

Balance – games which demand being able to hold a range of shapes and positions with stillness and focus. Our gymnastics modules focus largely on balancing on the floor, apparatus, and even whilst moving along a balance beam.

Co-ordination –this is developed in the majority of the games the children play in PE. Throwing and catching games, where the projectiles differ in size and shape, challenges the children to learn different techniques. Once the children are competent working individually they are challenged to demonstrate their co-ordination in pairs and as a team.


Our Key Stage 2 programme aims to progress the children to selecting and applying their FMS into more challenging situations. These include time restrictions, limited space available, distractions in the form or other class mates etc. As the children become more able to apply these skills to game like situations, they are introduced to a range of sports. These include:

  • Net/wall games – tennis, table tennis, pat ball.
  • Invasion games – netball, hockey, basketball.
  • Strike/fielding games – cricket and rounders.

Within the lessons individuals and teams are challenged to develop tactical awareness of attacking and defending.
Our gymnastics and athletics lessons also encourage the children to reflect on previous performances, and work individually or with peer feedback to improve. Whether it be through running, jumping or throwing in isolation, or creating a short gymnastics sequence including rotation and travel, the lessons always encourage reflection and improvement.
