Physical Education at Westmoor Primary

In Physical Education the children are encouraged to plan, perform and evaluate their work. At Key Stage One, the children are taught three areas of activity: games, gymnastics activities and dance. At Key Stage Two, the children are taught games, gymnastics activities, dance and swimming. At points during this Key Stage the children participate in athletics activities.  The PE Scheme consists of a balanced, progressive programme covering all of these components. It makes provision in the acquisition of the basic physical and manipulative skills and encourages active participation. These qualities together with the qualities of alertness, concentration and selfdiscipline help develop positive attitudes and the healthy growth of each child. Throughout each Key Stage the children are made aware of the positive effects of exercise on their bodies. Safe practice is observed at all times.
