PHYSICAL

EDUCATION

 

Physical Education at Woodcroft First School is

fun, energetic and inspirational for all of the children!



ENRICHING SPORTS

 

Children at Woodcroft First School

participate in a wide range of sporting activities through

a varied and exciting PE curriculum.  We are very proud

of our extensive range of after school clubs and our

many sporting successes.

The PE curriculum is delivered by our teaching staff and specialist coaches who are led by Mr Suddaby - PE subject leader.

All members of staff receive inset days to develop their PE teaching and more importantly how children make progress in PE. All lessons are designed to be incredibly fun whilst aiding children’s physical development and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.
 

Early Years

The early years programme of study compliments the EYFS guidelines and isdesigned to improve children’s agility, balance and coordination in an incredibly fun environment. Sessions are brought to life by using a wide range of resources and media, to ensure children are enthused by physical activity and engaged in wider learning. Music plays a massive part in the children’s learning and how they react to sound whilst learning and competing at this age. We also want them to be as adventurous as possible when trying out new ways of learning and sports that we teach.

 

Key Stage 1

Children are given the opportunity to continue their physical development in a range of increasingly challenging and competitive situations. The activities still relate to wider themes across the national curriculum complimenting the children’s development in agility, balance, coordination and dance.

 

Key Stage 2

Key skills acquired in Key Stage 1 continue to be developed through a combination of gymnastics, dance, invasion games, striking and fielding, net/wall games and athletics.

 

Extra-Curricular Opportunities

There are many opportunities for children to participate in after school clubs with a sporting focus and some which provide challenge and entertainment for those children with hobbies outside of school not in a sporting environment. 

Key Stage 1- football, Kiddi-Cook, gymnastics, reading, lego and ICT

Key Stage 2- football, drama, dodgeball, lego, choir, netball, Kiddi-Cook and gymnastics

PRIMARY PE & SPORTS FUNDING

All primary schools receive an additional yearly PE Premium grant from the Government. This extra funding is intended to heighten the effectiveness of PE provision in schools, and it is at the school’s discretion as to how the additional funding is spent.

 

School’s aim

Our school’s aim is to use the additional funding to improve the quality of teaching of PE, as well as engaging our children in high quality sporting activities, both curricular, extra-curricular and providing the children with experiences they may not get to do outside and beyond primary school.
