PE (Ryan Palmer – PE teacher)
KS1 PE lessons are focused on developing core movement skills (i.e. jumping, landing, dynamic stability) which are essential when progressing to more complex activities. The aims are also to instil a positive attitude to sport and work together with classmates.
KS2 moves onto game-based activities whereby the skillsets learned previously are developed in combination with each other. Teamwork and leadership are promoted moving up to years 4-6. Students who require additional development are invited to attend workshops based on learning motor skills in a fun environment.
Those students showing high levels of performance are picked to represent the school in one of many teams we have available, from girls’ football to cross country. These teams will begin training this year with a selected staff member in order to develop skills further and allow the students to gel as a team. Other opportunities available include after-school clubs, lunchtime table tennis and football, and inter-house competitions.
