Aims

Christ Church School believes that Physical Education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. Our Physical Education curriculum aims to provide for a pupil’s increasing self-confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.  A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities.  Our schemes of work are based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for pupils.  We also aim to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through activities such as gymnastics, dance, games (invasion, striking, net/wall), athletics, team tasks and multi-skills (agility, balance & co-ordination). 

Our aim for every child is as follows; 

  • To develop an ability to remember, adapt and apply knowledge, practical skills and concepts in a variety of movement based activities.

  • To promote positive attitudes towards health, hygiene and fitness.

  • To foster an appreciation of safe practise.

  • To develop psycho-motor skills through a range of relevant movement based activities.

  • To develop a sense of fair play and sportsmanship.

  • To develop communication skills, encouraging the use of correct terminology, to promote effective co-operation.

To foster an enjoyment, and positive attitude to physical education in school.

How the subject is taught at Christ Church

Our Physical Education curriculum has been organised to ensure that children in both Key Stages have access to all areas specified in the national curriculum.

In Key Stage 1, children develop fundamental movement skills to become competent and confident across a range of activities. At Christ Church we follow a scheme of work called ‘FUNS’ which is a fundamental movement programme focussing on (A) Agility, (B) Balance, (C) Co-ordination. 

In Key Stage 2, children continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Lessons ensure that children work on communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports, and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. It is hoped that the acquisition of their fundamental building block skills developed in Key Stage 1 will underpin their ability to apply them to more sports specific activities which are taught in Key Stage 2.
 
Assessment
Each child is assessed on their strengths and weaknesses in PE at the end of each unit. Subsequent lessons are then differentiated accordingly. The assessment data which is collated throughout the year from each unit is then passed on to each child’s new teacher. Continual assessment also supports the end of year report which provides an accurate picture of the child’s progress during PE and School Sport.
 
Opportunities for the application of maths, literacy and computing skills
At Christ Church we believe that Physical Education is considered as a vehicle to facilitate access to cross-curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques.
The schemes of work used in both Key Stage 1 and 2 incorporates a variety of lessons which allow for cross curricular maths to be integrated into various Physical Education lessons. We also have a bank of Physical Education resources which can be used to reinforce literary concepts, e.g. lettered bean bags, within lessons.
