St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School

Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus

P.E.

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.


In Year 1 and 2 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.
