We cover the full national Curriculum in PE, using the Succeedin Scheme of work. Every class has a 1 hour PE session each week. The hall is timetabled for these, although for some activities and if the weather is good the PE lessons may be taken outside. This year due to Covid-19, children should come into school in their PE kit on the day of their PE lesson. PE kit is blue shorts/tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt or house colour t-shirt, school jumper or plain blue sweatshirt can be worn. Children would be better wearing trainers rather than pumps for the day.
All pupils take part in movement activities throughout the day in school, this may include the Daily Mile, Just Dance, Skip2BFit and Cosmic Yoga as well as active play during breaktime and lunchtime.
We have a range of extra-curricular PE activities: judo, multi sports and football are all offered to our children.
We take part in a range of sporting competitions and have enjoyed particular success in football over the years.
Swimming is taught in Year 6 in the Summer Term with the objective that by the end of their sessions they should be able to swim 25 metres. Our local swimming pool is a very easy walking distance - less than five minutes away. It was recently refurbished and now offers an even better experience for our children.
All children are offered three residential experiences. In Year 4 the children go to Ufton Court for 2 one night stays; in Year 5 they spend time under canvas at Rushall farm, near Bradfield, and in Year 6 they go on a week's residential visit to Marwell. These visits enable us to cover the outdoor and adventurous activities strand of the National Curriculum for PE.
