By the time, children leave Stoke Bishop we will have provided them with the confidence to continue to partake in physical activity in a variety of ways that is accessible and enjoyable to them. All children will understand how exercising promotes a healthy lifestyle as well as understanding the positive effect exercise has on our physical and mental wellbeing.
PE at Stoke Bishop
PE at Stoke Bishop is highly inclusive. All children have the ability to access and take part in PE, and children will be supported and facilitated by all teaching staff to participate with the understanding that every child can make progress and improve their own personal best. Thus, believing it’s possible.
As part of our Real PE scheme of work, children will also develop a wider range of skills within their PE lessons, such as personal, social and cognitive skills. These skills will aid the whole child, not just focusing on their physical development, but focusing on problem solving, team work, communication and mental health.
We are lucky enough to be able to use the online platform Real PE to enjoy a range of exercises at home too!
Each year group from Year 2 and up has 2 PE lessons per week: 1 indoor lesson and 1 outdoor lesson. Additionally, each year group will take part in a Daily Mile around the school grounds. Finally, children in Key Stage 2 will have swimming lessons to help them in achieving the national standard of swimming 25 metres unaided.
The indoor lesson will be taught following the Real PE scheme of work with a focus on the 6 learning cogs.
The outdoor lesson will be taught focusing on athletic and games skills, with an increasing level of competitiveness as children progress throughout the school. This will range from multi-sports skills in KS1, to rounders, football, tennis and hockey in KS2. These will be tailored to upcoming tournaments and competitions.
