In PE, teachers plan from our own scheme of work which has been developed over a number of years. Sports coaches from St Paul’s enhance our provision. Children in Year 5 attend swimming lessons weekly.
Our PE lessons are very focused on building the skills and confidence of all children in our classes, to give them the opportunities to take part and try new sports. We provide everyone with the chance to practice and develop their own learning within PE, learning new skills that they will use in the future. KS1 lessons are based on improving their physical literacy, while learning the skills needed to play as team. Developing team work is key to all sports, as well as being a beneficial skill in the classroom and in future life. So we make sure that this is developed throughout their time at Bishop Parker. KS2 lessons are varied into learning new sports as well as improving their understanding into sports they may already play. With many school competitions throughout the year, they provide excellent challenges for the children. With a variety of sports on offer it gives many children a fantastic opportunity to try something new, or to represent our school.
