The Brook House Primary School PE curriculum is designed to physically prepare pupils for the next stage in their lives. The pupils develop key skills of throwing, catching, running, being able to swim, spatial awareness, coordination and teamwork. They know about the importance of physical activity to a healthy lifestyle. They have experienced a wide range of sports, games and other physical activities and are encouraged to further pursue those which they are interested in.
At Brook House Primary School, we use the PE Hub programme to support the delivery of our PE curriculum.
We intend that every child, irrelevant of their needs, develops a passion for Physical Education. We aspire for them to seek out and embrace the wide range of sporting opportunities provided at Brook House Primary School and take up clubs further afield. We aim for every pupil:
All classes take part in 2 hours of National Curriculum PE per week. There are many other ways that our physical activity time is enhanced:
EYFS physical development is a prime area of learning. We plan opportunities to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children are also helped to understand the importance of physical activity. They learn to make healthy choices in relation to exercise and food. We aim to deliver this with a mix of adult led and child- initiated activities. We aim to provide opportunities for children to develop their fundamental movement skills through adult led sessions ( following the Lancashire PE EYFS scheme of work) and our outdoor Fundamental skills area.
At Brook House Primary School we know that children learn best when the curriculum is well sequenced. Children revisit core knowledge, skills and understanding to deepen conceptual awareness. We plan PE activities so that they build upon the prior learning of the children. Children of all abilities develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in each activity area. Progression is planned for, so that children are increasingly challenged as they move through school.
As required in the National Curriculum we teach dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, outdoor and adventurous activities and athletics.
