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. Providing opportunities for our pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. The 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 as inter and intra school competition. Competitions out of school will provide some of the 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/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 environment. 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 summery we aim to give the children a well-balanced curriculum in physical education were the children can express themselves in an active manner whilst having fun.
