In PE this half term, all pupils will develop their creative 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 ‘linking movements together’ as well as ‘recognising similarities and differences in movements.’ These are important aspects of participation in Sport as well as in life in general.
KS1 will look first at isolated skills across a range of sports including netball, football and basketball and begin to focus on their wider application within competitive sport. They will also look at how to improve fundamental skills including balancing, agility and throwing and catching. After half term, Year 1 will also have a 6-week programme of tennis coaching provided by Dukes Meadows as part of their PE.
In KS2, pupils will look at ‘adapting skills, movements and tactics’ and will use this to create their own versions of activities. During PE lessons, pupils will develop confidence, respect and self-belief in themselves. This will be achieved in different ways, in different year groups. Year 3 will work on a number of different sports in the gym and outside in the first half of this term with swimming commencing after October half term. Year 4, 5 and 6 will begin by focusing on netball with the aim of understanding the tactics of the game so as to perform within a team and under opponent pressure. They will also be working on their gymnastic skills, creating and performing sequences.
Looking ahead, November 15th is Healthy Living Day where there will be a whole day of activities around eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We hope to see you there.
