Our physical education curriculum offers a broad range of activities to allow our children to make and sustain healthy, active life choices. We aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sports and other character building activities, whilst embedding those important values of fairness and respect.
In KS1 we focus on developing competently and confidently key movement skills in a variety of different activities. They will perform these individually and with others and also will start to engage in competitive and co-operative situations.
In KS2 the children will develop these fundamental skills further by learning how to use them in different ways. Through games, dance and gymnastic activities they will have opportunities link actions together and make sequences of movement. During the lessons children will have chance to communicate, collaborate and compete with each other. As well as time to improve on key skills, evaluate performances and recognise their own success. KS2 children will go swimming with their class once during the school year in a hope to swim 25 metres or further.
Our curriculum is enriched during the lesson and after school by specialised sport coaches and we also aim to run a variety of after school sports clubs.
Special sporting events will be held throughout the school year giving the children chances to join together as a whole school and work with their house team. We also aim to provide a range of opportunities to represent Wellesley in competition with other schools in the area.
