What we say about PE at Coxhoe Primary

Our PE lead, Mrs Tufts, says...

I love leading PE in our school! It's great to see and hear about the children's enthusiasm during PE lessons. They love to learn a variety of skills and sports and apply these through fun games. At playtimes, it is amazing to see children choosing to use sporting equipment and continuing their learning from lessons. Children also learn about the importance of exercise - we all strive to be active for at least 30 minutes at school every day! 

Our Year 6 PE Ambassadors (Thomas, Lewis, Maddison and Amelia) say...

 

Children from across school say...

I love that we do exercise in PE! I like running and jumping. We learnt a Christmas dance. (Willow - Year 1)

I love jumping off the box tops in PE! (Louie - Year 2)     

I like being goal defender in netball. (Pryce - Year 3)

I like to play lacrosse games with the lacrosse sticks! (Hollie - Year 4) 

PE keeps you active. We work together in teams. We've been learning the rules for tag rugby and how to defend. (William - Year 5 )

I love sports! In PE, we have been playing netball and learning all the rules. In swimming, we have been learning all the different strokes. (James - Year 6) 

Curriculum Intent

PE is a statutory requirement of the National Curriculum and an essential contributor to the development of the whole child. Through a high quality PE programme pupils develop physical competence and confidence and are given opportunities to be physically educated and become physically literate. Through a combination of entitlement and choice of activity, the PE provision will contribute to the personal development, health and well being, enjoyment, success and achievement of all pupils across the whole curriculum and beyond.

Swimming Data

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The National Curriculum for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

We have loved our first two PE sessions with Mr Todd and Mr Flatman. We have been working on our core strength skills as we practised lots of different ways of moving. We slithered like snakes and shuffled on our bottoms. We have also been practising our throwing and catching skills with beanbags. This was very challenging but we tried our best!
