In PE this half term, all pupils will develop their personal skills. The aim of this unit of learning is to use PE to develop skills that will assist pupils in succeeding in sport and in the real world.
KS1 will improve skills associated with ‘following instructions and practicing safely’ as well as ‘trying several times if at first you don’t succeed.’ These are important aspects of participation in Sport as well as in life in general.
KS1 we will be looking at isolated skills across a range of sports including netball, football and basketball. They will also look at how to improve fundamental skills including balancing, agility and throwing and catching.
In KS2, the pupils will look at ‘persevering with tasks’ and ‘accepting critical feedback and making changes’. During PE lessons we aim to install confidence, respect and self belief in all our pupils. This will be achieved in different ways, in different year groups. Indigo class in Year 3 will swim this term, while Lilac will be working on a number of different sports in the gym and outside. Year 4, 5 and 6 will focus on badminton and tag rugby, with the ultimate aim of understanding the rules and tactics of the game so as to perform the games within a team and under opponent pressure.
March 16th is Healthy Living Day where there will be a focus on the Winter Olympics and eating a balanced diet. Pupils will be asked to raise money for Sports Relief and complete the Sports Relief Mile. This will be a huge achievement for all pupils and will want everyone to proud of their run!
We Love PE!
