PE

Aims of the Curriculum Area

PE is a core subject taught throughout Key Stages 2, 3 and 4. The PE department aims to develop a competence and confidence in a wide range of physical abilities, with an emphasis on the acquisition of skills and techniques. Additionally, to promote awareness of health, fitness, hygiene and safety and the role that PE can play in maintaining these aspects, with opportunities to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. Furthermore, to provide a sense of enjoyment and achieving.

Teaching Methods

Physical Education provides opportunities to be creative, competitive, and face up to different challenges as an individual, in groups and in teams and in doing so promotes physical skilfulness, physical development and a knowledge of the body in action. Pupils are encouraged to learn by visual, auditory and kinaesthetic means. The use of structured and developmental programmes of study provide for progression, consolidation, extension and challenge as appropriate to individual needs.

Curriculum and Resources

Pupils in Key Stage 2, 3 and Key Stage 4 have two lessons of PE per week. Pupils are encouraged to take risks and challenge themselves by participating in a range of physical activities, with an emphasis on enjoying and achieving in a positive learning environment.

The teaching of PE follows the National Curriculum as outlined by the Department for Education. Woodeaton has a wide range of quality resources and equipment that allows a broad curriculum and many different activities that can challenge the learning and development of the pupils.

Pupils are continually assessed by their teacher using:

Information from observing, listening to and talking with pupils in lessons
Self and peer assessment during lessons
Self-assessment questions at the end of a topic
