Key Stage 1

In Key Stage 1 Pupils during the autumn term and the first half of spring, will be working on their dance skills, exploring a variety of different movements from a range of stimuli. They will work on implementing a range of gym actions, such as travelling, turning, balancing and jumping. During the second half of spring and the summer term, children will be developing their multi skills through a range of games both individual and team.

Key Stage 2 P.E/Games

Each year group spends one term throughout the year engaging in dance, gym and Box2bfit.

Dance makes an invaluable contribution to the personal development of children and positively encourages growth of self-confidence and self-esteem. The pupils develop choreographic abilities by working together to create a sequence. They are taught how to develop their performance skills, which gives the children confidence to perform in front of one another and to give supportive feedback.

Gymnastics is an important part of the curriculum. It develops awareness and understanding of movements of the body, particularly the use of space, time and energy. The children can develop and experiment by using a variety of apparatus and practical challenges. Children have been able to explore movement by creating sequences on a more complex level, linking balances that include travel, jump and turn.

Circuits enable children to understand the impact physical exercise has the body, learn the importance of exercise and to feel the benefits of regular exercise.

In addition to these activities, Year 4 will be participating in Boccia and New Age kurling during the summer term. Year 6 will be taking part in Yoga sessions.

Each year group participates in a different sport each term.

A variety of sports are taught throughout KS2; Year 4 and 6 concentrate on the skills for golf (Year 6), rugby, basketball and athletics.

Years 3 and 5 concentrate on the skill required for tennis, netball, cricket and athletics.

Year 4 also take part in swimming lessons during the summer term.
