Physical Education

Topics covered:

  • Outwitting opponents (netball, basketball, football, badminton, rounders and rugby)
  • Accurate replication of actions, phrases and sequences (gymnastics and dance)
  • Exploring and communicating ideas, concepts and emotions (dance)
  • Performing at maximum levels (athletics)
  • Exercising safely and effectively to improve health and wellbeing (health and fitness) 

Skills Developed:

Pupils develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. They start to understand what makes an effective performance and how to apply these principles to their own and others' work. They learn to take the initiative and make decisions for themselves about what to do to improve performance. They start to identify the types of activity they prefer, and take a variety of roles, such as leader and official.

 

What you could do to support your child:

Encourage your child to be as physically active as possible, both within school and in her own time. This could be achieved by participating in recreational activities such as swimming or by joining a local sports club. If you would like further information about sports clubs in the local area then please contact the PE department.
