Key Stage One
Pupils are taught to:
•master basic movements (on both the dominant and non dominant side of the body) including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
•participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
•perform dances using simple movement patterns.
At St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School, we want children to enjoy and be excited by P.E, so that they may continue to enjoy physical exercise into their adult like. Exploring many different skills and building their knowledge of dance, gymnastics and games.
Children are taught to develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They are given the opportunity to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Lessons are taught by class teachers and specialist providers to ensure that the children receive a wide experience of dance, gymnastics and games. Through this balance, they are able to build their knowledge and skills.
Children will leave our school, ready for the PE curriculum in the juniors school. They will enjoy P.E. lessons and be able to demonstrate a range of knowledge and skills at 'Age Related Expectations.'
