Our Physical Education curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression in a fun and engaging way. It is taught as 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. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress. In addition, we measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods: observations and evidence gathered during the lessons, tracking children’s achievement against the planned outcomes, photographs and videos and children’s discussions about their learning. We aim to equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilizing the skills and knowledge acquired through P.E.
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.
