We Are A School Games Mark Gold School!
We are really proud of the vast array of different inter-school competitions and festivals that we have taken part in. Children across KS2 compete in: cross country, athletics, Quad Kids athletics, football, bi-Athlon, Quicksticks hockey, tri golf, rounders, athletics town championships and most recently tag rugby with Wasps.
In Key stage one children have participated in either multi-skills or football festivals with other schools too.
Competition is an important part of the curriculum but it is important to recognise that children can compete in a range of ways - it does not just have to be through a team sport against another school. They can compete against themselves individually in PE lessons to develop a skill or achieve a personal best; against class mates during team focused games lesson or inter house events or against children from other schools. What is key at primary PE level is a development of basic physical literacy so that children develop the skills to be able to adapt to the range of physical and sports specific activities that are available to them.
A key area that we have been working to develop in PE this academic year is the use of I-pads for assessment. Earlier in the year 6JB were involved in workshops to explore how I-pads can play a fundamental part in the analysis and improvement of basic skills.
