End of Year Physical Education Report

 

End of Year Report 2016/2017

Throughout 2016/2017 Killinghall Primary School has made significant developments in the way children are participating in PE and sport across the school. We focus on inclusion and involvement in physical activity so each and every child develops good habits to reap the benefits of living a happy and healthy life.

 

Sports Coach

We continue to employ our own Sports Coach who works with all children across the school.

We are now using more technology to assist in our children’s learning. By using the school ipads for videos and pictures, we are able to give the children a variety of feedback and they are able to see their efforts being shown on the outdoor screens in the playground and improve their personal performance.

Training

During 16/17 our Sports Coach provided training for all teaching staff, concentrating on gymnastics and introducing new warm-up games that engage children and require them to think from the moment the lesson begins. The Sports Coach has also attended the annual Bradford PE Conference in order to obtain the latest information regarding primary PE.

Extra-Curricular Activities

We provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Along with our 7 weekly sports clubs after school, we worked closely with The Bradford Bulls Foundation this year and this gave children the opportunity to partake in a 6 week long programme. This programme focused on children low in confidence and self-esteem and offered them the chance to meet rugby stars and participate in ‘health classes’, where they learned about food, exercise and healthy living. The Bulls Foundation coached 6 rugby sessions for one of our Year 4 classes. The children loved this and were fully engaged.

Mile-A-Day

Having started the Mile-A-Day scheme with Year 6 last year, we have now implemented it into the daily routine of Year 4. This has been a huge success in terms of confidence.  At least 90 children a day begin their day with activity boosting their concentration and energy levels in academic lessons.

Competitions

The Sainsbury’s School Games Partnership through Hanson Academy continues to provide our weekly competitions, with a wide variety of sports on offer. Killinghall have had over 100 children competing in these inter-school competitions across the year.

Facilities & Equipment

We have improved our gymnastics and outdoor playtime equipment. Installing the ‘Four-Way Shooter’ in the playground, children now have a wider variety of games to play and the shooter has already been incorporated into this years’ Sports Day. We have also purchased several pieces of long-lasting and age-related outdoor equipment that are being used on a daily basis.  This increases the motivation and percentage of pupils being active at break time.

To complement our gymnastics equipment in the large hall, we have added extra padded nesting tables and coloured wooden benches. This provides variety for the children during their lessons, challenging them in their lessons.

We have also purchased an orienteering pack including compasses, session plans and several resources to accompany and expand our existing resources. This has been very well received and used by all teachers across the age ranges.

Targeted Pupils

Individual pupils have been encouraged to use pedometers, support lower classes, become sports leaders and do additional exercise to lower their risk of adult obesity.  Parents have attended meetings to discuss movement and healthy eating programmes.

Bikeability

This is taught annually to Year 5 pupils in the summer term.

Improvements in Standards

Having been low down in local league tables this year the KPS team got through to the finals of our local inter-school’s tennis tournament and the Bradford finals for hockey.

The lunchtime football league run by our Sports Coach and Umar (our pupil sports coach/referee) has meant that 76 children have participated in the football league.

Killinghall Lunchtime Football League

We provide an organised football league for Year 5 & 6 at lunchtimes. These games are held Monday – Thursday and children monitor their performance on the League display board. Children are responsible for looking at the display board to find out when their fixtures are, informing the rest of their team and arranging replacements if their players aren’t available. This year we also introduced Umar our sports leader from Year 5 who officiated every game and noted down all the scores.

Teams – 14 ( 5 or 6 children in each team )

Girls – 23         Boys - 53

Total – 76
