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 KS1 & KS2. Outdoor and Adventurous Activities are catered for during the children’s residential trip to Grafham in Year 4.
