PE in our school
The main emphasis at Key Stage 1 PE is on the physical development of basic motor skills.
Pupils will learn to control objects, apparatus and themselves physically in a variety of situations. They experience progressively more difficult tasks and attempt an increasing range of activities.
Your child will have opportunities to create, refine and perform travelling movements and balances on gymnastics apparatus.
Gymnastics and dance allow possibilities for children to express themselves creatively, too. Your child will also develop key skills, such as throwing and catching which provide numerous opportunities to practise important motor skills. Your child will be asked questions about how their bodies respond to exercise and why it might be important to them. They will begin to make a connection between exercise and their hearts beating faster, their lungs needing more air and feeling more energised afterwards.
