PE

Physical Education

 

Intent:


At Deepcar St John’s CE Junior we aim to develop pupils who will be physically active, and can flourish in a range of different physical activities. St John’s Junior School recognises the value of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA).

We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:


·         develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

·         engage in competitive sports and activities

·         lead healthy, active lives

·         Receive high quality first teaching in order to develop their own knowledge, skill and capability

·         Are willing to participate in a range of activities and situations working both independently and co-                          operatively with their peers

·         Have the opportunity to maintain and develop high levels of physical fitness

·         Reflect on their own and each other’s performances, aiming to develop fundamental evaluation skills

·         Improve their understanding of how fair play and competitiveness inform their sporting attitude

·         Can swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and to understand the importance of being safe in                and around water

 

With sport and exercise being recognised for more than its physical benefits on health, it is important that the curriculum targets other areas to maximise growth and understanding. It is important that PE develops a platform to the foundation of a healthy lifestyle for future generations.    

We want to develop children’s confidence and leadership skills though our use of Y5 and Y6 play leaders. 

 A high priority is given to attendance at external events against other schools in the local area. This is completed through our sports partnership with LINKS. This helps introduce the children to competition and helps develop a competitive edge as well as pride in their own ability. It also introduces the children to sportsmanship in a different environment where self-discipline, respect and responsibility play a big part in how children participate in teams.

Attendance at local festival encourages children to try new skills and interact with others, developing social skills. It introduces children to other pupils from different schools where they may have different values but also been taught slightly different techniques which can encourage peer learning.


Implementation:


Pupils at Deepcar St John’s Junior’s participate in two hours high-quality PE lessons during a week.

Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports and a skill-based learning environment.  We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities during and outside the school day, in addition to other sporting competitions, including intra and inter-school competitions.  Through the use of Sport Premium, children gain experience of working with experts in the PE field as well as observing passion and good practice.   This inclusive approach ensures that all children have the opportunity to improve their physical development and well-being.  We ensure all PE lessons, extra-curriculum activities and inter/intra school competitions are undertaken in line with our Health & Safety Policy, guided by the Association of Physical Education (afPE).

P.E. is taught at St John’s as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas and throughout the school day.


We teach lessons so that children:

· Have fun and experience success in sport

· Have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development

· Secure and build on a range of skills

· Develop good sporting attitudes

· Understand basic rules

· Experience positive competition

· Learn in a safe environment

· Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.


Regular, structured opportunities for discussion with partners and in groups, as well as opportunities for independent reflection, video analysis and feedback.

 

Impact:


P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At St John’s, we provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Our PE curriculum aims to improve sporting skill and fitness through the values and disciplines of PE.  Skill progression is clear and inclusive to ensure all children have the capacity to make progress.  We measure the impact of our curriculum through termly assessments and pupil feedback which inform our future planning and interventions, enabling all children to be part of their own learning journeys.

Children will be encouraged to answer questions and communicate with their peers regarding PE. Based on the information they have been taught the children will be able to transfer the information to other relevant activities (Tactical skills, Physical skills and Physiological skills).

The sport encourages decision-making, and builds map reading and navigational skills, which may prove useful in other areas of life. It's a great exercise for the brain as well as body.We had great fun during our first lesson, where they had to find points on the map so they could solve a number of puzzles.





Year 6 - Hockey - Autumn Term 1 


Hockey

involves running, sprinting, changing direction and large amounts of strength, power and flexibility. Additionally, the movements involved in hockey develop gross motor skills, such as the ability to sprint down the pitch, as well as the fine motor skills that come from intricate stick work. Another important element playing a team game, like hockey is the social impact  Through playing as a team, children learn how to communicate with their teammates; they figure out trust and cooperation and they learn responsibility, as they take roles within the team.

     


Year 3 and 4 - Rounders and cricket - Autumn Term 1


Children have learnt how to 

play the different roles of bowler, backstop, fielder and batter. They have also acquired and developed a broader range of skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination and develop overall fitness and strength.

In all games activities, children have to think about how they use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition. In striking and fielding games, like cricket and rounders, players achieve this by striking a ball and trying to deceive or avoid fielders, so that they can run around bases to score runs. When fielding, they try to prevent runs or points being scored.
