Welcome to the PE page! My name is Mr Sweeney and I am the PE teacher here at Churchfields Primary School. Children from Year 1 through to year 6 have two lessons every week, exploring a range of different skills and activities.
There are lots of opportunities to participate in after school sports clubs which take place every day.
What we are learning
Key Stage 1
In the autumn term, activities are focussed on developing balance, coordination and team work. Children will experience a range of ball games and given lots of opportunity to practice their skills.
In the winter, children will follow units of work on gymnastics and dance. Pupils explore and communicate their ideas through movements and begin to compose sequences and routines of their own.
In the summer, children develop their athletic skills by learning the basic techniques for running, jumping and throwing. In games the focus is on simple striking and fielding activities.
Key Stage 2
In the first half term, children develop their knowledge of health and fitness. Pupils take part in fun games and activities designed to build agility, muscular strength and cardio vascular fitness.
In the second half term, lessons focus on tag rugby and football. Children practise basic skills such as passing and travelling with the ball and are given opportunities to apply them in small sided games.
In the winter, children follow units of work in cross-country running, gymnastics and dance. Pupils will build on their prior knowledge, composing and performing more challenging sequences and routines.
In the summer, children develop and refine their athletic skills and are introduced to more advanced events and techniques, such as the triple jump and the shot putt. Children also participate in a range of games, including tennis and cricket.
Sporting events and competitions take place throughout the year in cross-country running, football, tag rugby and athletics.
Please note when your child has PE and ensure their kit is in school for lessons. Children require trainers, navy shorts, house coloured t-shirt and a tracksuit for the colder months as most lessons will be outside.
