Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope
Physical Education (PE) contributes to the overall education of all children by helping them to lead full and valuable lives through engaging in purposeful and high-quality activity. It promotes active and healthy lifestyles, physical skills, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. PE enables children to learn confidence, perseverance, team spirit, positive competitiveness and organisation. Children must engage in a programme of PE that encourages fitness, improves their strength and teaches them the rules of games. PE is an integral part of school practices allowing all children in the school to gain a sense of achievement and develop positive attitudes towards themselves and others.
In order to promote active and healthy lifestyles all children should:
- be physically active
- adopt the best possible posture and appropriate use of the body
- engage in activities that develop cardio vascular health, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance
- understand the need for personal hygiene in relation to vigorous physical activity
In order to develop positive attitudes all children should:
- follow the conventions of fair play and honest competition
- cope with success and limitations in their performance
- persevere with and consolidate their performances
- be mindful of others in their environment
At Bromesberrow St. Mary's Primary, our teachers teach PE alongside specialist sports coaches to ensure that our children get a quality experience and continue to make good progress. Each class has a minimum of 2 sessions of quality PE per week covering a broad range of skills in line with the National Curriculum and our PE Coverage Planner across the year. Here is how sessions are being organised and taught for this year:
|Class One||Class Two||Class Three|
2 x Val Sabin session (teacher led)
|2 sessions weekly (coach and teacher led)||
2 sessions weekly (coach and teacher led), including swimming
As a part of our whole school cohesion in the curriculum we adopt an enquiry focus each term, e.g. being sportsman, gymnasts, athletes, historians, geographers, artists, musicians, linguists... We believe that this creates better connectivity between the subjects, making learning more relevant to the children, so that they are inspired to 'reach for the stars' as a school team and personally.
