At St Anne’s Church of England Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting positive attitudes towards future healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sports provision. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are both challenging and accessible to all. Our teaching of PE aims to develop pupils physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. It will provide opportunities for pupils to explore our school values of perseverance, responsibility, forgiveness, acceptance, honesty and respect. Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of competitive and non-competitive events ensuring a breadth of experiences.
In Year 2, we have focussed on our fundamental movements such as running, dodging, jumping, skipping and hopping. We have applied our skills whilst learning the game ‘French Skipping’. We have found that this has required us to use increased balance and coordination for our jumping.
