Children will become competent in a range of physical skills and activities.
Children are given the opportunity to engage in physical activity that continuously challenges their fitness levels.
Children have the opportunity to participate in competitive sports and a broad range of activities both during lessons and in extra-curricular events.
Children and families will be actively encouraged to make healthy choices including food, activity and lifestyles for them to continue to lead healthy, active life.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION KEY KNOWLEDGE
To develop the children's geographical understanding, they are introduced to key concepts in a sequential way, with year groups building on the learning from the previous year.
Each year group has milestones for the children to work towards to ensure they are making progress in both their knowledge and skills. Teachers test this understanding at the end of each year to ensure that children are well prepared to continue their learning about the world around them in their next class.
OUR PE JOURNEY
Cultural Capital is the collection of skills and experiences which children need to help them thrive in the wider world.
Our Geography provision (including out of school trips linked to Geography topics) aims to give the children a diverse set of encounters and skills which will be valuable to them long after they leave Year 6. These include:
Visits to the local area including areas of woodland
Zoo visits and 1:1 animal encounters
A visit to the coast for every child in Key Stage 1
Opportunity for outward bounds experiences in Year 6
A deeper understanding of current global issues
Learning to use and create maps
Learning to give and to follow directions
Engaging effectively with new digital technologies.
CROSS CURRICULAR LINKS
The skills and knowledge the children use in PE complement those in the rest of the curriculum. These are just some of the ways that PE links to other areas of their study:
Each year group reads at least one text which has been based on their Geography topic.
Children produce two pieces of extended writing in English lessons based on the text they have studied.
Children encounter statistics, produce charts and graphs and use directional language.
Through 1:1 iPad usage, the children explore Geographical Information Systems like Google Earth.
Children are used to making observations and recording data in their Science lessons. These skills are reenforced through fieldwork in Geography.
Children use their drawing skills to produce different kinds of maps; from creative 'Messy Maps', using items from around the classroom, in Year 1 to more traditional maps drawn at a variety of scales.
Just like in RE, the children are encouraged to think critically and thoughtfully about the world in which they live. This is particularly the case in Upper KS2 where the children tackle some of the most important topics facing humanity today.
PRIMARY PE & SPORTS FUNDING
All primary schools receive an additional yearly PE Premium grant from the Government. This extra funding is intended to heighten the effectiveness of PE provision in schools, and it is at the school’s discretion as to how the additional funding is spent.
Our school’s aim is to use the additional funding to improve the quality of teaching of PE, as well as engaging our children in high quality sporting activities, both curricular, extra-curricular and providing the children with experiences they may not get to do outside and beyond primary school.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION SKILLS AND FIELDWORK
Geographical skills and fieldwork are key parts of the children becoming geographers! They don't just learn about geography - they do the things that geographers do! This includes:
Using maps, globes and atlases
Giving and following compass directions
Working with data and statistics
Taking part in fieldwork activities to observe, measure and record
