In PE this half term, all pupils will develop their knowledge of Personal Skills and the importance of regular exercise. The aim of this unit of learning is to use PE to develop transferable skills that will assist pupils in succeeding in sport and in the real world.
Key Stage 1 will focus on being independent within PE, following simple tasks on their own and asking questions to help develop their skills. These are important aspects of participation in sport as well as in life in general.
Key Stage 1 will look at isolated skills across a range of sports including tennis, football and netball 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.
In Key Stage 2, pupils will look at persevering within sport, challenging themselves to improve their skills through recognising their strengths and weaknesses. During PE lessons, pupils will develop confidence, respect and self-belief. This will be achieved in different ways, in different year groups. Year 3 swimming will continue this half term for Indigo Class together with top up swimming lessons for those children in Year 5 who have not yet met the required standard for the end of Key Stage 2.
Years 4, 5 and 6 will begin by focusing on netball and rugby with the aim of understanding the tactics of the game so as to perform within a team and under opponent pressure.
Looking ahead, on March 27th school will hold our annual sports themed day and we hope that many of you will join us to support your children. We hope to see you there.
