PE Curriculum, School Sport and Healthy Recipes
Welcome to Hadlow's PE
Hadlow Primary School will provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. The school will provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We will provide all children with opportunities to compete in sport and take part in other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
At Hadlow Primary School, we implement a fundamental movement skills based curriculum. Fundamental movement skills are movement patterns that involve different body parts, such as the legs, arms and head. This enables the following skills to be performed:
They are the foundation movements for children to develop, allowing them to participate in sporting activities. For example, football, gymnastics, rugby and netball.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time.
- Engage in competitive sports and activities.
- Lead healthy, active lives.
By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
Key Stage 1
Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Pupils should be taught to:
- master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
- participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
- perform dances using simple movement patterns
Key Stage 2
Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
Pupils should be taught to:
- use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
- play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
- develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
- perform dances using a range of movement patterns
- take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
- compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
Pupils will be taught to:
- Tread water, swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)
Hadlow Primary School have been apart of the Sainsbury's Awards for many years. This year the schools were not ranked Bronze, Silver and Gold as it was difficult to measure due the the restriction in place.
Looking over the past year Hadlow have been involved in many events and new activities during their breaks in their bubbles. Skipping has been very popular due to our new skipping ropes. Each class each tried to improve their skipping skills, which is fantastic for their coordination and counting and setting their own personal targets to achieve.
Unfortunately we were not able to participate in school competition at venues with other schools, but we were able to take part in virtual ones. We achieved a first and second in the dance competition. Thank you to all the parents for filming and sending in the videos, they were all a joy to watch.
We also took part in the virtual Race 4 Life. Year 2 boys were place 1st, 2nd and 3rd and Year 6 one girl was placed 1st and a boy was placed 2nd. Well done everyone for taking part.
Unfortunately, this year football and netball matches did not take place against other schools, which was very disappointing for our school team for both boys and girls.
Sports Day was a little different this year as it was by class and not as a whole school event. All the children took part, whether it was running, taking part in the field events or event giving out the stickers, they were a real credit and we, as teachers thoroughly enjoyed it, and were extremely proud that they adapted and were really encouraging their class members.
Hadlow Primary School will provide swimming lessons for Year 6 in terms 2 & 3. Year 5 in terms 4 & 5. The lessons will be held at Larkfield Sports Centre.
Schools are very fortunate to receive Sports Funding. Our school has spent the money on renewing and buying new equipment, so that the children are able to enjoy their PE lesson with up to date equipment.
Also providing lunchtime activities, which the children have been enjoying. This is part of their being active 60 minutes per day.
To be all inclusive, provide opportunities and give the children positive experiences.
