P.E.

Overall Objective – To develop the pedagogical approaches in PE lessons

At Stone St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, all our children partake in an inspiring and creative curriculum in all subjects, which allows them to develop knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm in their learning. This is applied to our PE curriculum. This then ensures that our children leave Stone St Mary’s physically educated along with the knowledge, skills and motivation required for them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. This enthusiasm will help them with leading a healthy lifestyle as well as participating in physical activity and sport. Our children have many opportunities to find their sport and have the chance to represent our school in a wide range of tournaments, opportunities and after school clubs. Our vision and values within our school are linked to our overall teaching of PE, ensuring collaboration, perseverance in a caring environment where knowledge and skills can grow.

Below are our expectations for the end of each key stage:

End of EYFS Statement:

  • Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing. 
  • Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
  • Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.
  • Children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently.

 

End of Key Stage 1 Statement:

  • 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.

 

End of Key Stage 2 Statement:

  • Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
  • Pupils should be taught to:
  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate, such as badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance, for example through athletics and gymnastics
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

Tuesday saw the return of football tournaments. We faced 4 schools from Dartford and the boys gave it their best. Harry scored 2 goals and Ollie scored 1 goal over the tournament. The boys showed great sportsmanship and were proud to represent the school. Overall, the boys came second in their group and just missed out on the final. 

Girls Football Tournament - Thursday 29th September

On Thursday 29th September, 10 of our year 5 and 6's represented Stone St Mary's at a tournament of schools in the Dartford area. 

Despite being their first time playing together, the girls managed to come 4th within their group. They all played extremely well and represented the school in a great manner. They should all be very proud of themselves. 

Thursday saw 10 lucky dodgeballers in year 3/4 compete against 6 other Trust schools. 

Full of excitement and optimism, they were eager to start. After winning their first match, they were so pleased! Leila was the last one standing on the next match (which we lost). Our fourth match saw Timi being the last one standing. Timi was on a roll and caught the ball, which bought the whole team back into the game πŸ˜€ and then Henry caught the winning shot! In our final match, Dami caught the ball, which saw the whole team back in! 

Despite losing several matches, the excitement was still there! Well done to our dodgeballers for showing great sportsmanship!
