Owston Park Primary Academy are proud to have gained the School Games Platinum Award.
Physical Education promotes physical learning through play and movement, and promotes health and physical fitness.
Our Physical Education subject leader is Mr Johnston. Mr Johnston says:
" P.E, sport and exercise has always been a big part of my life. It has helped me develop into the person I am today. I Love working with young children and supporting them to develop their skills in Physical Education and to become healthier and more active. I believe P.E and exercise has a big role in the development of our children both as Sports people and with life skills. I hope the children have lots of fun in P.E and enjoy their time with me"
The PE Curriculum at Owston Park
The P.E Curriculum aims to give our children high-quality physical education provision that inspires all of our pupils to succeed and excel in physical education, competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities and provides opportunities for our pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our curriculum will provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. These opportunities will arise in lesson and via inter and intra school competition. Competitions out of school will provide children, particularly in KS2, with the chance to compete against other school both in Doncaster, South Yorkshire and regionally.
The Physical Education curriculum here at Owston Park Primary Academy aims to ensure that all pupils develop their competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, become physically active for sustained periods of time, to engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy and active lives. After the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant area of the P.E.
In KS1 the children will develop their fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent, confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. The children will be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
By the end of KS2 the children will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use these skills in different situations, in different ways to overcome challenges. Children will be able to link these together to make actions and sequences of movement both in dance and gymnastics for example. They will enjoy communicating with peers, collaborating as a team and compete against each other both in non-competitive and competitive environments. The children will develop an understanding of how to improve their health and fitness, personal, social, cognitive and emotional skills within physical activities and sports. The children will learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success through analysing and evaluating performance with their peers. This will be reflected in lessons throughout the academic year.
In summary, our PE curriculum aims to give the children a well-balanced Physical Education where the children can express themselves in an active manner whilst having fun.
Our P.E Roadmap:
On Thursday the 5th of May, I took the Year 4/5 Football team to the STONEACRE CUP 2022 at the EcoPower Stadium, the home of Doncaster Rovers Football club. The children played against 7 other schools from across Doncaster. We won 6 out of the 7 games, taking us in to the semi-finals vs Spa Academy, Askern. We won the game 1v0, taking us in to the prestigious final of the Stoneacre Cup. We played Richmond Hill in the final who we had previously beaten 3v0 in the group stage. The children competed well but unfortunately, we lost on penalties after drawing 0v0 in the game. A disappointing way to lose in a final, but the children can be proud of themselves after showing great teamwork, sportsmanship, individual brilliance and never giving up. I was proud of the children’s effort and determination to improve. A great day for all involved and on a personal note, I am proud to be supporting Stoneacre in organising this great day for the children to make memories for a lifetime. Well done children!
