PE at St Andrew’s CE Primary School

 

Physical education at St Andrew’s develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.  Physical Education includes dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities.

  

 

                                                                                                             

 

At St Andrew’s PE activities are planned so that they build upon the prior learning of the children.  There are opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS).  In each activity area, there is planned progression built into the scheme of work, so that the children are increasingly challenged as they move up through the school.

 

They 4 key areas of progression are:

  • Locomotion- movement
  • Manipulation- throwing and catching
  • Stabilization-balance
  • Strength and conditioning

 

The school plays regular fixtures and tournaments against local schools.  This introduces a competitive element to team games and allows the children to put into practice the skills that they have developed in their lessons.
