The PE curriculum and wider provision will ensure that pupils will learn and develop their fundamental movement skills which underpin overall physical development. These skills are taught from reception to year 6 through fun and exciting PE lessons. These fundamental skills are then applied to a wide range of ‘games’ and sports. In Key Stage Two, the rules and techniques applicable to more specialised sports are taught.
Children at Beaconside have the opportunity to participate in team games, competing at an inter-class and inter-house level. They will learn how to overcome competitive challenges, as well as congratulate peers for their successes.
By the time pupils leave Beaconside we want:
· pupils to understand how to maintain a healthy lifestyle through physical activity
· pupils to have a positive attitude to physical activity
· pupils to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during different activities
· pupils to have the fundamental skills that can be applied to a range of sports and activities
· pupils to understand rules of key sports and talk about strategy and tactics when playing team sports
· pupils to participate in competitive sport within school and against other schools, displaying mutual respect and sportsmanship
· to develop young leaders to organise events, take initiative and act as role models for younger children during PE lessons and at playtime
· to have reflective pupils who can discuss and evaluate their own performance and understand how this can be improved
· pupils to make connections in their learning e.g. with other subjects e.g. Science, PSHE, Maths
· pupils to persevere with tasks and develop their problem solving skills.
In order to achieve this we will:
· teach high quality PE lessons, with challenge and support so that all pupils can achieve
· have a whole school approach to the teaching of PE (Real PE), with supplementary units to ensure curriculum breath and enrichment
· offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities so that children can develop and learn new skills
· attend and host sports festivals for pupils to engage in less competitive activities
·use our house system as a platform to offer competitive opportunities
· send physical homework to develop fitness levels and engage families
· organise fixtures against local schools
· organise a themed sports week annually along with on-going events e.g. 'Colour Run' to showcase and celebrate the high profile of PE
· encourage physical activity at playtime and promote an active classroom.
