PE

PE is taught at our school to develop in children a love for comeptitive and physically demanding adventurous activity. We want our children to live healthy, active lifestyles and take with them our chosen concepts for PE which are; health, competition, friendship, teamwork, sharing and resilience.

Our aims are to increase participation for all children in competitive and physically demanding activity across the school so that our children can have healthier bodies and happier minds. We also aim to develop competence in these activities and ensure the children are physically active for sustained periods of time.

We teach a skills based approach. We aim to provide our children with opportunities to develop , refine and then apply a range of skills to different sporting activities. Each term, we will focus on developing or refining a different set of skills and then provide children with opportunities to better apply these skills to a range of sporting activities and better understand how these skills or techniques can be adapted for each activity.

KS1 & KS2 receive two hours of physically demanding activity per week – the first session is delivered by our specialist coach, Mr. Newton, and the second session builds upon these skills and is delivered by their class teacher. EYFS engage in timetabled PE sessions but are also encouraged to explore the world around them and use a range of movement skills through continuous provision.

Outdoor education sessions with Mr Parker (EYFS – Y6) also provide children with further opportunities to apply skills, concepts and knowledge to problem solving in an outdoor learning environment.

Holy Family – PE Impact:

In KS1 pupils we asses pupils on how they are devloping fundamental movement skills. We monitor their competence and confidence across a broad range of opportunities which extends their agility, balance and coordination, on their own and with their peers. A programme of competitive activities is planned across the year however this has been limited due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

We teach pupils through class lessons and specialist support 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

In KS2 pupils continue to 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 enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other and this is formatively assessed. Our goal in lessons as they move through KS2 is for them to understand how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

We teach pupils through class lessons and specialist support 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

Swimming in Y5 

Pupils attend swimming lessons weekly in Y5. Along with the instructors we teach them to:

  • 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]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

Healthy Holy Family Catholic Primary School

We encourage all our children to actively participate in physically demanding activity. We focus on participation and rewarding effort for all children but also provide the competitive element for those who want to take their love of sport further . We attend weekly Bassetlaw School Games events and host our very own Fitness Week during the school year. Please see below our achievements.

If your child has been active outside of school, please let the office know and bring in their awards / achievements for us to celebrate in our celebration assemblies.

PE Uniform policy:

From September, we ask that children come dressed in the correct PE uniform on their PE days.

PE uniform – a red Holy Family polo / t-shirt, black joggers, leggings or shorts. Black tracksuit tops.

We ask that children in Y5 bring their swimming costume in a separate bag to change into over lunchtime. Girls will need a full one piece swimming costume and boys need to wear trunks/ shorts. Swim shorts must not be baggy, extend beyond your child’s knees or contain pockets. This is for health and safety reasons; your child will not be able to swim if their swim wear does not follow School Swimming’s policy.

Children will need a re-usable water bottle.
