PE, Sport & Physical Activity
Our Physical Education coordinator: Mrs Davies
"In PE, we get to learn new games and new ways to be healthy and look after ourselves."
"We get the opportunity to demonstrate lots of values in PE. We get to use cooperation, determination and resilience. It's important to trust your team mates and never give up."
"I'm always challenged in PE to do my best and push myself to do things I didn't think I could do!"
It is our intention when teaching the PE curriculum we develop the enjoyment of physical activity and strive to improve the importance of health and wellbeing. Our intention is to give children the opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding and apply these in competitive situations, with the vision this provides them with lifelong learning skills.
We strive to ensure that all our pupils receive a well-rounded learning experience when participating in different sporting activities, learning the importance of health and wellbeing and equipping them with the necessary values and tools to achieve in our academy and beyond. It is our intention to engage pupils in the possibilities of sport to develop a passion for being active, healthy and the confidence to try new things and build resilience and determination with all they do.
At Towngate, we recognise that in order for all pupils to progress they need to be confident across each of their yearly objectivs. Our PE curriculum covers the knowledge and skills outlined in the National Curriculum and ensures all children are given opportunities to be challenged to progress their learning further. Through our teaching of PE we aim to deliver the lessons in a meaningful context, giving purpose and wherever possible curricular links are exploited, particularly links with Maths, British Values, our Values Based Learning and SMSC.
Key Stage One:
In KS1, we provide opportunities for pupils to 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. Over the course of the year this covers dance, gymnastics and a variety of games. We are striving to ensure they are able to engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations including competition.
Key Stage Two:
In KS2, 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. We are determined that they enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other and that they develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports, learning how to evaluate and recognise their own success. Over the key stage, pupils will continue to be taught dance, gymnastics and a variety of games. Year 6 children are taught swimming.
We strive to ensure that our pupil’s attainment is in line or exceeds their potential when we consider the varied starting points of all our children. Through our progressive skill based curriculum we are measuring the children’s ability, striving for them to meet their age-related expectations for their year group. We intend the impact of our PE curriculum will ensure children will leave our academy prepared for the next step in their physical education and life beyond primary school.
We our proud to announce we are now a partner school with Huddersfield Giants! This provides us with many exciting opportuntities throughout the school year!
As part of our partnership we were given the opportunity to attend a whole school trip to the Huddersfield Giants Stadium and The Zone!
Competitions and school games:
One of our aims this year is to increase our participation within competitive sporting activities out of school. Last year we attended a range of sporting activities such as; Y5 handball, Y5&6 netball, KS1 potted sports and mini olympics.
KS1 Mini Olympics
"It was great we learnt we needed to work as a team, it was the only way we could win"
"I showed determination and resilience with alot of the activities at mini olympics because I found some things hard but I didn't give up"
