Welcome to P.E. at Abbey.
Throughout the year we would like to offer a range of different and varied activities for pupils to take part in. The curriculum is tailored to each class and ensure to check the PE twitter page to keep up to date with weekly PE lessons.
This half term lower school continue their journey to improve their Agility, Balance and Coordination. They will be learning new skills through different activities and stories.
Upper school will be put through their paces during our health related fitness half term. We will be testing different components of fitness and putting together a personal exercise program to improve.
Pupils will be required to bring in their own PE kit for their PE lessons. Kit is as follows; Green PE Polo (can be ordered from school £4), shorts (indoor PE) change of socks and trainers. At any point we are doing PE outside, tracksuit bottoms and a jumper can be worn especially in the colder conditions. If we are using the field for football or rugby, football boots may also be brought in. Please ask your child’s class teacher as to when PE lessons are.
Lower school will take part in a curriculum based on agility, balance and co-ordination that is supported through the use of a Real PE package. Pupils will focus on six key areas; physical, social, personal, cognitive, creative and health and fitness. It is a unique child-centred approach that develops the key abilities pupils need to be successful within PE and sport.
Upper school will take part in a sport based curriculum that will prepare them for further education as well as keeping fit and healthy. Pupils will look at the importance of physical activity and how key components of fitness can be used in different sports. As pupils progress further through their education at Abbey, they will be able to complete a Youth Sport Award and have the opportunity to be entered in for a GCSE in Physical Education.
Each class takes part in the daily mile challenge to enable pupils to feel refreshed and ready to learn. After school clubs are now in full flow with Basketball on a Monday and Football on a Tuesday as well as other clubs that are available.
Sport events will take part throughout the year pupils to take part in, letters and other information will be sent in advance and remember to keep up to date with all the latest PE and Sport news through our twitter feed.
