The intent of the PE curriculum at Hippings Methodist Primary School is to develop children who enjoy taking part in physical activity. Through the teaching of transferrable physical skills and tactics, as well as sequencing and choreography; we look to produce children who are physically literate and able to participate confidently in a number of physical disciplines and sports. We aim to encourage children to become more physically active and to acquire knowledge of how their body works and the importance of physical fitness.
Through PE and school sport, we intend for pupils to have a growing understanding of their own physical fitness and respect their own abilities and skills and those of others. We aim to demonstrate to pupils that they can improve their technique and skills through hard work and practise. The children will also learn that they can help others to improve their tactical understanding and ability to choreograph sequences. We encourage children to appreciate the skills and abilities of everybody and understand that everyone has their own talents and attributes. Our pupils will be taught to respect their opponents and promote fair play.
The national curriculum for PE aims 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.
