Intent, Implement, Impact:
- Foster a love for and enjoyment of being active.
- Develop ‘fitness for life’ by promoting regular exercise's health benefits.
- Identify talent and allow children to master different sports
- Develop self-esteem, confidence, and social skills.
- Contribute to the physical development of every child.
- Provide children with the fundamental movement skills they need for later life and the next stage of learning
- Give children a way of expressing themselves and an opportunity to be creative.
- Develop a range of skills that can be applied in other contexts.
- Give children the opportunity to try out activities that they would not otherwise have access to.
- Follow the national curriculum
- Children have the ability to articulate what they have learned
To ensure full topic coverage, the school uses ‘peplannig.org’. This whole-school primary physical education curriculum links directly to the Primary National Curriculum and creates continuity and progression in physical education teaching.
- Two PE lessons a week.
- A spiral curriculum where topics are revisited every year.
- A variety of teaching and learning styles that involve a mixture of whole-class, group, and individual activities.
- Every lesson is focused around a clear learning objective and a set of steps to success, to explain ‘how’ the learners will achieve their learning objective. Learners are made aware of this at the start of each lesson and review their learning at the end of each lesson.
- Dialogue and demonstration are used as teaching tools throughout all lessons. Particular skills are modelled and discussed. Plenaries and mini-plenaries are used to highlight good practice and the next steps in their learning.
- Extracurricular activities to support a love of PE
- Attendance at inter-school competitions to challenge more able pupils and develop a love of sport.
- QPR mentoring programme used to develop the teaching of PE throughout the school.
The differing abilities of the children within our school will be catered for through the use of STEP (SPACE, TASK/TIME, EQUIPMENT, and PEOPLE)
Children who grasp ideas quickly and confidently will be challenged through adapting tasks. In addition, these children will be given opportunities to compete at inter-school competitions.
Children are assessed on a termly basis using an assessment sheet from peplanning.org (declarative and procedural knowledge). This information will then be used by the next class teacher to support and challenge pupils.
Pupil’s voice shows that the children have a positive attitude toward their physical education lessons and learning.
By the end of year 6, children should:
- Understand how being active contributes towards a healthy lifestyle.
- Have the fundamental movement skills needed for the next stage of learning.
- Attended at least one inter school competition.
