PE

 

 

The school believes that a broad and balanced P.E. curriculum experienced by all of the children, in a safe and supportive environment, makes a vital and unique contribution to both pupils’ physical and mental development. This new curriculum will be progressive, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable. It will not only develop physical competence and skills but it will also serve to promote an understanding of the benefits of exercise and develop opportunity to establish self-esteem, self-confidence, tolerance and understanding of others. The new P.E. curriculum will promote high standards of teaching, learning, behaviour and relationships.

 

At Grove, all pupils continue to have two hours of high quality Physical Education timetabled per week.  The foremost objectives of PE lessons are to develop the six areas of activity. These are Dance, Games, Gymnastics, Athletics, and Outdoor and Adventurous activities.

 

In years 3 and 4, there is a focus on pupils being able to learn new fundamental skills as well as develop other aspects of their cognitive progression.  This will be done using throwing and catching games, dance, gymnastics and striking and fielding games.  In years 5 and 6, pupils will take skills learnt in previous years and adapt them to use in game situations involving tactics and beating opponents.  During years 5 and 6, Pupils will also be given a wide range of opportunities to take part in competitions both in school and against other schools.

 

A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The scheme of work is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils.

The scheme aims to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities.

 

Physical education is considered as a vehicle to facilitate access to cross-curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques.

 

Aims

 

  • To continue to develop an ability to plan a range of movement sequences, organize equipment and apparatus, and begin to design and apply simple rules.
  • To continue to develop an ability to remember, adapt and apply knowledge, practical skills and concepts in a variety of movement based activities.
  • To continue to promote positive attitudes towards health, hygiene and fitness.
  • To foster an appreciation of safe practice.
  • To continue to develop psycho-motor skills through a range of relevant movement based activities.
  • To offer a range of competition opportunities
  • To continue to develop a sense of fair play and sportsmanship.
  • To continue to develop communication skills, encouraging the use of correct terminology, to promote effective co-operation.
  • To foster an enjoyment, and positive attitude to, the subject in school.

 

Objectives

 

  • Children will participate in a range of psycho-motor / movement activities in order to develop personal physical skills. (Practical attainment)
  • Children will be made aware of their body in relation to others and their immediate environment and aim to promote quality of movement. (Kinaesthetic)
  • Children will be made aware of simple physiological changes that occur to their bodies during exercise. (Physiology)
  • Be given opportunities to develop imagination and co-operation to achieve shared goals. (Teamwork)
  • Be given opportunities to develop personal characteristics like initiative, self-reliance and self-discipline (Self-knowledge)
  • Be given opportunities to enjoy and succeed in the subject as well as be stimulated and challenged. (Problem solving)
  • Be given the opportunity to develop areas of activity of their choice in extra-curricular time.
  • Make full use of the facilities here to prepare a child mentally and physically for key stage 3 and beyond.

 

 

Resources

 

The facilities for the teaching of Physical Education at Grove are, we believe, unique. As a primary school we have access to a gym which includes children’s and adult fitness machines, indoor hall space, an outdoor adventurous activity area, hard court areas, a grassed playing field (summer term).  Within the local area, there is access to Drive Park, Hanley Forest Park and also Northwood stadium for lessons such as Athletics, Outdoor Adventure Activities (OAA).

 

The school has a well-resourced PE store and equipment is checked regularly and stock replenished as often as budget allows.

 

Teachers have access to equipment and literature, via the coordinator, and can always rely on advice when needed. There is also a specialist swimming teacher who works alongside pupils to develop their ability and work their way through different awards.  This takes place at Excel Academy and follows a timetable set by the school to best accommodate the whole school.
