Curriculum Intent (Vision)
At Manor Field, we recognise the role that PE has to play in promoting a long-term healthy lifestyle, which is both enjoyable and fulfilling. We aim to provide a rich and diverse physical education curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to succeed in sport and other physically-demanding activities. By working with external coaches, children are able to experience sports such as Judo. We want to provide opportunities for our pupils to become confident and physically-literate, in a way which supports their wellbeing, both now and in the future.
Through our curriculum, pupils learn that physical activity is ‘fun’ and crucial in terms of leading a healthy lifestyle. In addition, we aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in order to build resilience and embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect, in addition to an appreciation of honest competition and good sportsmanship. As part of their weekly timetable, the children have the opportunity to participate in two 60 minute PE lessons.
Implementation of the curriculum
In our curriculum, there are two PE areas every half term. In addition, we enrich our PE curriculum throughout the year by providing the children with the opportunity to take part in Judo lessons. During one topic a year, there is a link with the dance unit of work.
Impact of our curriculum
Our PE and sport aspires to build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills, enabling each child to be the best they can be by:
· Improving health and well-being;
· Providing high quality opportunities and outcomes for all;
· Encouraging community involvement;
· Promoting active participation and competition;
· Raising achievement and supporting excellence.
'Dance and gymnastics are my favourite PE lessons, as I am able to be creative.'
'During Sports Day, I try to improve on my previous results. I enjoy being part of my sports day team as well.'
The PE overview is currently being updated to reflect the latest guidance. At the moment, we are focusing on redeveloping the children's love of PE and physical activity. We are continuing to develop their stamina, physical literacy, and their physical and mental wellbeing. This is mainly through Bootcamp style activities.
