In PE this half term, all pupils will develop their knowledge of Cognitive Skills and the importance of reflecting on their own and others’ performance/skills. These are transferable skills that will assist pupils in succeeding in sport and in the real world.
KS1 will focusing on being independent within PE, following simple tasks on their own and in small groups to help develop their skills. These are important aspects of participation in Sport as well as in life in general.
KS1 will look at ball skills and target games. They will look at how to improve fundamental skills including agility and throwing and catching, dribbling and rolling balls. Any support you are able to provide with these basic skills will help them enormously.
In KS2, pupils will look at the importance of evaluating performance and decision making within sport, challenging themselves to improve their skills. During PE lessons, pupils will develop confidence, respect and self-belief. This will be achieved in different ways, in different year groups. Years 3 and 4, will be improving their basketball skills and knowledge and Years 5 and 6 will begin with hockey, improving dribbling and passing skills, aiming to understand the skills and tactics so as to perform within a team and under opponent pressure.
