Physical Education at Westmoor Primary

PROGRESSIVE CURRICULUM NURSERY - Y6

Physical Education at Westmoor Primary Information

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 self discipline 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. For our youngest children in Foundation Stage, physical activity is vital in children’s all-round development, enabling them to pursue happy, healthy and active lives. Gross and fine motor experiences develop incrementally throughout Early Years, enabling future success in so many areas such as the skill to write proficiently, handle tools to make and create, and excel in a wide range of physical sports as they mature.
