PE

At St Peter’s we believe that PE is an important part of every child’s education and that all children need access to a wide range of PE, both indoors and outdoors.  PE lessons will encompass a variety of sports and the children will learn to develop their fundamental movement skills.  Every week the class teacher will deliver two PE lessons, though there will be terms whereby the class may have Outdoor and Adventurous Activities delivered through Forest School which will be counted as one of their lessons or if in Years 3, 4 and 5, weekly swimming lessons.

 

There will also be terms when some PE lessons will be delivered by outside coaches, for example hockey and squash, though class teachers will remain in the lesson and magpie ideas.  Gymnastics and Dance will also feature during the year and all children will have access to these.

 

Teachers will use their own experience to teach PE but will also use ideas from the real PE Programme of Study when deemed necessary.  Real PE lessons will focus on the skills of agility, balance and coordination that the children need to develop in order to access many different sports as they get older.

 

We also offer a wide range of before, during and after school sports clubs and regularly take part in competitions

within our local area and further afield.

 

If your child wears earrings, please could these be removed on their PE day or ensure that your child can remove them before a lesson.  It is also very important that your child has the correct PE kit in school so that they can take part in all their lessons.  In winter time could you also provide your child with a tracksuit in case lessons take place outside.

If your child wears earrings, please could these be removed on your their PE day or ensure that your child can remove them before a lesson or supply tape to cover.
