Physical Education at Killinghall

Physical Education is vital for children to develop their aesthetic, social and co-ordination skills and have healthy lifestyles in the future.  Our curriculum provides many opportunities for children to acquire these skills.

Our PE curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and compete in competitive and non-competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.  It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  Opportunities to compete in sport help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

We aim to ensure that all pupils:-

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy, active lives.

At KS1 pupils will be taught to

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • Participate in team games
  • Perform dances using simple movement patterns

At KS2 pupils will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills and enjoy collaborating and competing with each other.  They will develop how to evaluate and recognise their own success.  Pupils will be taught:-

  • Running, jumping, throwing and catching skills
  • To play competitive games and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • To develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance (for example through athletics and gymnastics)
  • To perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • To take part in outdoor and adventurous challenges both individually and within a team
  • To compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

At Killinghall, all children take part in at least 2 hours of physical education as part of the national curriculum.

We have good facilities with a large playground and 2 PE halls for:-

  • PE Indoors and Outdoors
  • Outward Bound Activities
  • Keep Fit

All Year 4 children (KS2) attend swimming classes for the at least 10 hours through the school year. This will consist of one lesson per week. The lessons are mixed and individual single changes rooms are provided at the side of the pool.

Pupils are taught to:-

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently for a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively
  • Perform safe, self-rescue in different water based situations.

An outward bound adventure residential is organised each year at venues such as Robinwood, Nell Bank and Chateaux Beaumont in France.

Children are presented with certificates for a variety of achievements.

We have a Sports Coach who teaches from reception through to year 6 and also runs after school clubs and external sports competitions.
