This term KS2 have been playing football and tag rugby in their lessons. The children have really enjoyed the opportunity to get back outside and keep fit and healthy. When it has been wet they have done some fitness lessons inside. 




KS1 have been developing their fundamental sports skills such as running, jumping skipping and have also moved onto throwing and catching. 












EYFS and KS1

Our curriculum intent is that children:

  • Develop a range of basic fundamental movement skills, actions and ideas, such as travelling, running, jumping and turning, rolling, balancing, throwing, catching or kicking a ball.
  • Become increasingly competent and confident through watching, listening and experimenting with movement and ideas so they can extend their agility (locomotion), balance and stability, object control and coordination individually and with others.
  • Learn to practise by repeating what they have done in ways that make it better, such as making movements more controlled, effective or expressive.
  • Watch, copy and describe what they and others have practised, to build their awareness of how to improve the way they move and play.
  • Grow understanding of how to work with others (social skills) and to develop compassion, creativity, resilience and empathy.
  • Recognise and describe how their bodies feel during and after physical activity and to develop an appreciation for health and fitness and the benefits of an active life style.
  • Learn to use space safely when they work alone and with others, showing increasing operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
  • Enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations.


Our curriculum intent is that children:

  • Continue to apply and develop new skills across a range of activities that may include dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities.
  • Learn how to use these skills consistently by repeating their movements in different ways and be able to link them to make actions and sequences of movement until their performance is clearer, more accurate and controlled over time.
  • Use their creativity and imagination in performing dances, making up their own games, planning gymnastic sequences, responding to problem-solving and challenging activities.
  • Develop an understanding of how to succeed in a range of physical activities, and how to evaluate their own success.
  • Develop co-operation, responsibility, compassion, creativity, resilience and empathy.
  • Enjoy being active and know why activity is important to their health and well-being. We firmly believe in encouraging the value of self-belief, linking strongly to being fit both physically and mentally.
  • Develop the ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and an understanding of the importance of this is promoting long-term health and well-being.
  • Understand how to stay safe during PE lessons and sporting activities, including the need for rules and regulations.
  • Enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
  • Develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
  • Develop the ability to take the initiative and become excellent young leaders, organising and officiating, evaluating what needs to be done to improve, and motivating and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others.
