As part of our skills based PE curriculum, children will receive two one hour slots per week – one provided by their class teacher and the other by sports specialists.
What is Real PE?
Real PE provides fun and creative ways where children can develop their skills, in line with the new national curriculum, which include agility, balance and coordination as well as healthy competition and cooperative learning. It aims to also develop physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life.
What else does the curriculum cover?
Within this skills based curriculum, pupils will be able to learn key movements to various dances and combine these to create their own routines. Outdoor adventurous activities will enable pupils to learn key orienteering skills as well as problem solving. They will also experience gymnastics as well as swimming ensuring they have a well-rounded skill set. They will be able to apply these skills through a range of games, such as Tag Rugby and Hockey.
