KS1 PE

Key Stage One

The National Curriculum for KS1 sport is very much about looking to develop the key skills that the children will learn in EYFS, whilst introducing a range of new and more complex skills.

 Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

 Pupils should be taught to:

• Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities

• Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending

• Perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Starting in KS1, the children will receive two PE lessons a week. This will include indoor PE which will be taught to the children by their class teachers and PPA, which will be taught by sports coach Mr Gayles. Along with this, we will also be running playground skills and active lunchtimes for the children to come and participate in structured sporting activities with our Sports Coach. We will also be running a variety of after school clubs as part of our National Curriculum + programme as well as internal and external competitions throughout the year.
