Our PE curriculum is designed to encourage and enthuse all our pupils to be active and enjoy sport. We believe that through sport children can learn many important life skills such as self-belief, determination, respect, teamwork, honesty and passion: these are values which are integral to our school sport.
During Key Stage 1 pupils will build on their movement and develop their Agility, Balance and Co-ordination (ABC)skills. The children experience a broad range of activities to develop their ABC skills and start to work with other pupils and in small groups.
During Key Stage 2 pupils further develop their physical skills in a purposeful and engaging environment. The pupils experience a board and balanced curriculum where they experience drills, games and competition. They develop an understanding of strategies and tactics in a variety of sports and learn how to evaluate their own and others performances. This term we will be focusing on Hockey and Basketball.
Sainsbury’s School Games Values
Spirit of the Games are the six key values that are the underlying success of the Sainsbury’s School Games.
The six values of passion, belief, respect, honesty, determination and teamwork were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around and values which the pupils at our school try hard to emulate.
We believe that these values are such important life skills for our pupils to develop and through their experience of competitive sport at school these values will be brought to life and help them to achieve their dreams.
The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition. There are six values:
Honesty: With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Teamwork: Treat everyone equally, support each other’s and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Respect: Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect everyday, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
Self belief: You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Passion: Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Determination: Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
