Gravenhurst Academy

Physical Education

Children have two lessons of PE each week. One of these lessons is taught by a qualified Sports Coach and the other is taught by the class teacher. We use a variety of schemes and teacher’s own expertise to teach various different areas of PE. We aim to provide children with a variety of experiences which will develop their motor skills, make them aware of space and its use, allow them to move freely and expressively on their own and co-operate with others. Much of the early work will emphasise individual skill and technique, leading on to small game situations involving co-operation and competition. Basic Moves- a set of transferable skills useful in many different sports is taught as one of the PE sessions in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Swimming is taught in Years Two, Three and Four. Outdoor and Adventurous Activities are catered for during the children’s residential trip to Grafham in Year 4.
