Overview

Physical Education develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle thus enabling them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

We aim to:

  • Enable children to achieve and provide enjoyment in their learning
  • Encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations
  • Develop the way children perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities
  • Increase children’s ability to use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control of their performance
  • Teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise
  • Develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination
  • Develop an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success.
