Physical Education

 
“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of human kind can unfold.”

Joseph Chilton Pearce

“The true value of sport is more than the skills that young people learn.”

Thomas Menino


The overall aim of the PE department is to produce a programme of study that is well balanced, suitably varied and challenging in order to encourage pupils to gain enjoyment and development from all lessons and lead pupils to participating in physical activity outside of school. The PE curriculum will provide opportunities for.

  • Physical development;
  • Expansion of experiences;
  • Creative and aesthetic development (including cultural understanding);
  • Competition/cooperation;
  • Challenge and achievement;
  • Teamwork and trust;
  • Etiquette and moral issues;
  • Promote physical activities and sport outside school;
  • Enjoyment and satisfaction.

The PE team are extremely proud of the achievements of the pupils to date, as they have performed in different sporting arenas throughout the year. We would like to congratulate them all and thank them for their efforts both in teams and as individuals.

What our learners need to be successful

Clean and appropriate kit is required for all activities. This kit requirement also applies to extra-curricular activities, including school trips, fixtures and after school clubs.

  • Green Top
  • Black Shorts
  • Black tracksuit bottoms
  • White socks
  • Green Jumper
  • Trainers

All pupils will be expected to wear PE kit in their lessons, even if they are unable to participate due to an illness or injury. They will be given another role such as coach or official.

If a pupil arrives to the lesson with no kit, they will lose part of their break time the following day.

If a pupil fails to bring their kit on 3 occasions, we will contact parents/carers, asking for their support in ensuring that their child is able to participate in PE lessons.

We ask Phase 1 to bring additional items (jogging bottoms and tops) to ensure that the children stay warm when they have outdoor lessons.

Please note that PE staff will not take responsibility for any items of value left in the changing rooms, particularly jewellery and mobile phones. Any valuables left in the changing rooms are responsibility of the pupil.

What our pupils will learn

At Key Stage 1, pupils will be taught the fundamentals needed in order to participate in games, both physically and socially. We want pupils to have the ability to explain the importance of a warm up/cool down and be able to explain the effect exercise has on the body. Each unit of work will link to one of the five Tudor values and these values will be instilled into all lessons across each unit.

At Key Stage 2, pupils will be taught the skills they need to take part in a wide variety of fun and engaging sporting activities. This includes the tactics and rules needed to compete in team sports. We want pupils to have the ability to warm up and warm down effectively and be able to watch the performances of others and provide feedback for improvement. Each unit of work will link to one of the five Tudor values and these values will be instilled into all lessons across each unit.

This half term lessons will focus on reintroducing pupils to a limited number of sports whilst focusing on pupil engagement and enjoyment. Pupils health and wellbeing will be at the forefront of lessons, ensuring they are safe and happy whilst participating in physical activity. Each bubble (class) has their own set of equipment that will not be used for any other bubble to avoid cross contamination and equipment used will be kept to a minimum. By focusing on key skills for KS1 and hockey and football for KS2, pupils will be able to maintain social distancing and ensure a happy and successful environment.

Each class will alternate weekly between using an outdoor and indoor space so please ensure your child has kit appropriate for the weather. Pupils are asked to come to school in their PE kit on their PE day so please be aware when this is:
Year 1 – Wednesday
Year 2 – Thursday
Year 3 – Monday
Year 4 – Thursday
Year 5 – Wednesday
Year 6 – Tuesday

Extracurricular

Due to the covid restrictions no clubs will take place in Autumn Term 1. We hope to have these up and running as soon as it is safe to do so.
