Curriculum Plan

CURRICULUM PLAN FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

 

Physical Education at St Edmund’s Catholic School will motivate all pupils to enjoy, succeed and excel in a range of sports which will help to build character and embed values such as teamwork, respect, resilience and much more. Pupils will develop competence in a wide range of activities and opportunities, be physically active for sustained periods of time, and engage in competitive sports and activities to enable them to lead healthy active lifestyles. Pupils will develop the skills of underpinning sport and movement so that they can be transferred into a range of sports and exercise later in life. Pupils will also be encouraged to work co-operatively, competitively and independently in order to fulfil their potential and contribute positively to the extra-curricular programme here at St Edmund’s. 

We have deviated from the National Curriculum in this subject. 

 

By the End of Key Stage 2 

Pupils have studied a broader range of skills and have learnt how to use them in different ways and link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Pupils have learnt to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They have also developed an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learnt how to evaluate and recognise their own success. Pupils should be able to run, jump, throw and catch in isolation and in combination whilst playing competitive games, which are modified where appropriate. For example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis.  

Pupils should also be able to apply the basic principles suitable for attacking and defending. Pupils should have developed their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through athletics and gymnastics. They should have also had opportunities where they have taken part in outdoor and adventurous activities where they have overcome challenges as an individual and a team. Pupils should lastly be able to compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvements to achieve their personal best.

We have chosen to teach the above as these principles will help develop the pupils’ physical competence, enabling to participate in extracurricular activities and attend community links helping pupils to develop essential skills in preparation for year 8. In addition, this knowledge will promote the cognitive, personal, physical and social values that such a broad physical education curriculum will provide. 

Pupils will know:
