Every class at Kingsley take part in at least 2 hours of physical activity a week as part of the National Curriculum. Children will learn a variety of skills across a range of sports. This includes skills in gymnastics, dance, invasion games, net and wall games, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities. They engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities.
In Key Stage one children will 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.
In Key stage two children continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
In Key stage two we also provide swimming lessons as part of the National Curriculum this allows children to develop a range of strokes effectively, become confident in performing safe self-rescue in different water-based situations as well as becoming competent swimmers allowing them to swim over a distance of at least 25 metres. In the autumn and spring term year 5 children will attend swimming lessons from September to February half term and year 4 children will swim in the spring term and summer term. Year 6 children attend an intensive swimming top-up programme every afternoon for two weeks in the summer term.
