Physical Education

PE (Physical Education) is taught in accordance with the National Curriculum requirements.  We provide opportunities for all children to learn a progression of skills throughout early years and key stage 1 in dance, gymnastics, games and athletics. The National Curriculum focuses on key skills of balance, agility and co-ordination. We work on these skills and teach the children to apply these in a range of activities.


During dance children are taught to create simple movement patterns incorporating a number of dance elements. Dance elements include travelling, gestures, turns, stillness and jumps. Children are taught to move to the music counting the beats.


During gymnastics children are taught to balance, travel, rock, roll and jump. They use different parts of their bodies and think about how their body feels and the muscles they are using when moving and balancing. These skills develop throughout key stage one.


During games children develop a range of ball skills and techniques to play a range of sporting games. Within year 1 children spend time passing the ball including throwing and kicking and incorporating them in mini games to consolidate the skill in order to enable children to play more structured games in year 2 and participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending


During athletics children learn the skills of running, jumping and throwing in preparation for sports day.

Physical activity at home

As a school we are committed to encouraging physical activity for all our children.

How to increase activity:

  • The easiest way to develop physical activity further is to walk to and from school each day.
  • As the warmer weather approaches it’s a great opportunity to visit local parks for walking, games and outdoor activities.
  • Riding bikes and scooters.
  • Local sports clubs.

Local holiday clubs during school holidays.


Inter-school Competitions

We are continuing to provide opportunities for Inter School Competitions. This is where children have the chance to compete with children from different schools. They take part in a range of different activities in both competitive and non-competitive environments.


Check back soon to see what sports competitions we attend this year.
