PE at Victoria Road Primary
During KS1 and KS2 pupils will work through the 6 key areas of the Real PE curriculum. Real PE is fully aligned to the proposed National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. The foundations of the Schemes are based on Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) of agility, balance and coordination, inclusive competition and broader essential holistic skills (creative, cognitive, social and personal skills).
Personal- They will learn about their own learning and start to challenge themselves, learn to try things for themselves and when to ask for support.
Physical- Pupils will learn to move confidently in different ways.
Health and Fitness- They will become aware that exercise is important for good health.
Creative- They will explore and describe different movements and link movements together.
Cognitive - They will learn to follow simple instructions. With support they will recognise similarities and differences in performance.
Social- KS1 pupils will learn to show patience and support others, to praise other children and work sensibly.
Personal- KS2 pupils will learn to cope well and react positively when things become difficult. They will learn to persevere with a task
and improve their performance through regular practice.
Social-They will learn to cooperate well with others and give helpful feedback. They will help organise roles & responsibilities and guide a small group through a task.
Cognitive-Pupils will be able to understand ways (criteria) to judge performance and identify specific parts to continue to work upon. They will use their awareness of space and others to make good decisions.
Creative-KS2 pupils will learn to link actions and develop sequences
of movements that express their own ideas.
They will learn to change tactics, rules or tasks to make activities more fun or challenging.
Physical-They will learn to use combinations of skills confidently in sport specific contexts. They will perform a range of skills fluently and accurately in practice situations.
Health and Fitness-KS2 pupils will be able to describe the basic fitness components and explain how often and how long they should exercise to be healthy. They will record and monitor how hard they are working.
As a school we are creating clear, shared learning journeys in PE!
Purpose of study
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
We use The power of PE, Go-Noodle and a Yoga website to meet these aims.
Physical Education Statement of Intent
To develop children’s experiences and enable them to achieve personal successes, the appropriate skills and confidence to partake in all sports.
It is our intent for the Physical Education curriculum to inspire all pupils to enjoy, succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way, which supports their health and fitness. We will provide our children with opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed core values such as fairness and respect. We will strive to ensure that every child exceeds their potential and the impact of our PE curriculum will allow our children to live a healthy and active lifestyle. We use The Power of PE, Go-Noodle and a Yoga website to assist in this aim. Our Sports Premium funding assists with high quality CPD and coaches who can enhance the curriculum through lunchtime and after school Clubs-District Sports and Eolas+. Local professional clubs support our curriculum. We are assisted by the PSPP in quality lessons.
In Key Stage 1, the children will develop fundamental skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. The children will engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of challenging situations. Over the year, the children will take part in a variety of games, gymnastics and dance activities.
In Key Stage 2, the children will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and link them to make actions and sequences in movement. We will provide the children with plenty of opportunities to allow them to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing. Throughout the year, the children will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of games, gymnastics and dance. Year 4 children will be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently. There are catch up lessons for children in Y5 and Y6 who have not met the full NC requirements. Y5 have an annual sailing experience through Horizons Sailing Charity.
