Physical Education

 

PE develops a child’s knowledge, skill and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. A varied curriculum is in place to support this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, games, swimming and outdoor adventure activities.

 

Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable children to make informed choices about physical activities throughout their lives.

 

Through the teaching of PE St Andrews Primary School intends to:

  • Enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination.
  • Encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations.
  • Develop the way children perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities.
  • Show children how to improve the quality and control of their performance.
  • Teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise.
  • Develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination.
  • Develop an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success.
  • Assess pupils learning, analyse and interpret the results to inform future planning and lessons.
