PE/Sport

Welcome to the Whitehouse Common PE Page

To see details of our Sports Premium Grant Expenditure, please visit the Sports Premium Page.

 

At Whitehouse Common Primary School we offer a high-quality physical education that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

 

Across the school children have opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

 

Aims

Within physical education at Whitehouse Common, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.
  • 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.
  • 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.

 

Attainment targets

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.

 

What do the children learn?

 

Key stage 1

In KS1 (Years 1 & 2) pupils will develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident whilst accessing a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination. This will be completed individually and with others. 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.

 

Key stage 2

In KS2 (Years 3-6), pupils should continue to apply and 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 should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

 

Pupils should be taught 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.
