Physical Education (P.E.)
WHAT are we aiming for?
Our PHYSICAL EDUCATION (P.E.) curriculum aims to create children who:
- understand the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, including nutrition
- are motivated and enthusiastic about sporting activities
- have the skills, confidence and resilience to achieve personal success in a range of sports, including swimming and alternative sports
- understand the importance of team work and demonstrate good sportsmanship
HOW do we achieve this?
At Forsbrook, PHYSICAL EDUCATION (P.E.) is taught at least twice weekly.
Our P.E curriculum is split into the following areas:
- Striking & fielding
- Alternative Sports
The skills associated with these areas are built on a progression from Early Years to Year 6. Each half term, children are exposed to two different areas, occasionally with the input of specialist coaches. Within each area, they will: acquire and develop skills, select and apply skills, develop knowledge and understanding and evaluate and improve their performance.
All children, from Reception upwards, swim for one term each academic year. Children who excel in this area then have the opportunity to compete in an inter-school swimming gala against local schools.
Inter-school competitions are scheduled each year to allow children to compete in sports they excel in. Children are then encouraged to pursue their strengths at a local or national level.
Daily Exercise (30 minutes plus)
At lunchtimes, sport leaders organise a variety of activities to encourage children to take part in physical exercise outside of curriculum time.
