In PE this half term, all pupils will develop the C from SCHOOL BAG, to become creative and critical thinkers, through doing three sports that will all test their critical thinking skills in different game situations. The creative skills will be shown through different opportunities.
Key Stage 1 pupils will be exploring how they can use their knowledge of throwing and catching to use in the striking and fielding topic this summer. They will also be using their knowledge of fundamental skills to display good techniques across athletics.
In Key Stage 2, all pupils will participate in rounders and athletics, refocusing on what they have learnt in other striking and fielding games and bringing these skills into rounders. We will be encouraging pupils to try to aim for higher targets working within the teams to decide where best to place shots. Pupils will also be learning more about athletics, focusing on our Sports Day practice, breaking down the movements required within some events to ensure they understand how to get the best out of themselves.
Upper Key Stage 2 pupils will be refining their skills within athletics, looking at how they can organise their team to try to give them self the best chance of gaining points/runs.
Jasper Class will continue their swimming lessons this half term, so please remember they will need a swimming hat and the correct swimming kit with a towel each Wednesday to make the most of these lessons.
As a school, we will continue to send various teams to represent the school at different competitions locally across a number of different sports that link into what pupils have learned at school. A team from school participated in the Quadkid’s athletics tournament, qualified first in the West cluster, and then finished fourth in the borough competition.
Please remember that pupils must come to school dressed in the correct uniform PE kit on the day of their lessons. Lessons are on the following days:
Monday: Year 2
Tuesday: Year 3 and Year 1
Wednesday: Year 4 and Year 6
Thursday: Year 5
The weather is starting to get warmer but it can still be quite cold and damp; please ensure that your child has the option of cold weather PE kit (plain black or navy jogging bottoms and a plain black or navy sweatshirt/ school jumper). For further updates, please check back on the website.
There were 58 pupils in Year 6 at the start of 2021-22. At the beginning of the year:
This was partly as a result of a lack of access to swimming pools during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sports Premium funding was used to support additional swimming lessons for those pupils who could not achieve these objectives during the Autumn Term 2021. The impact of these additional lessons was that, at the end of 2021-22:
As Sports Premium funding has now been confirmed for 2022-23, lessons have been booked for the pupils who will enter Year 6 in September 2022.
