The new primary school PE curriculum has been taught from September 2014. At Manor Farm Junior School we offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based.
Our pupils will acquire and develop a broader range of skills and techniques which follow on from the basic skills learnt at Key Stage 1, including movement, agility, balance and co-ordination.
Pupils will get the opportunity to use these skills in a wide range of different physical activities from the more traditional to those some children will not have experienced before eg: archery.
play competitive games including inter- house and inter- school competitions,
learn, refine and perform dances
take part in outdoor and adventurous activities. These outdoor and adventurous activities take place within PE curriculum time with orienteering style activities and whilst on residential visits in Year 4, 5, and 6.
Pupils will receive two terms of swimming tuition. Currently this is taught in the summer term of year 4 and the following Autumn term in Year 5. Those pupils unable to swim confidently may be offered the opportunity to receive extra tuition after this.
Pupils will learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success and knowing how to improve.
Pupils with disabilities will be encouraged to participate fully with lessons being planned in such a way that every disabled pupil can join in.
Pupils receive two PE lessons per week. One of these is taught by specialist staff from Premier Sport. The other lesson will normally be taught by the class teacher.
