Swimming Outcomes: 2018-2019
69% of our Year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres; using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
We aim to develop children’s skills, enjoyment and confidence in physical activity and introduce them to the pleasures of sport to help develop active children who benefit from a healthy lifestyle. Through a multi-skills approach, children develop their skills in games, as well as athletics, gymnastics, dance and swimming. In some classes, Specialist PE teachers are available to work with the children on specific skills, and also run lunch time activities for the children.
At the beginning of this academic year, we have introduced a new resource to aid in the development of physical education - Real PE.
What is 'real PE'?
The vision of Real PE is to "create a positive relationship with physical activity for life." They hope that this is achieved through their "unique and inclusive approaches"...which will..."develop essential behaviours, physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills in all young children".
There are six elements that PE will focus on:
Within the teaching of these areas, there is an ongoing focus on the fundamental movement skills (Agility, Balance and Coordination).
