‘Intelligence and skills can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong’- John F. Kennedy

 

At St Thomas', we believe that PE, School Sport and Physical Activity have a vital role to play in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of our children.

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

PE journey through KS2

Evidencing the Impact

Spring 2 -

Year 3 - Netball – Children are developing their understanding of the attacking and defending principles of invasion games. Children will be working on throwing and catching, moving into space and shooting.

Year 4 - Tag Rugby -   Children are developing their understanding of the attacking and defending principles of invasion games. They will develop the skills needed to succeed in Tag Rugby, focussing on agility, hand-eye coordination, teamwork and attack and defence skills.

Year 5 - Basketball – Children are developing their understanding of the attacking and defending principles of invasion games. In basketball pupils will be working on attack and defence, focussing on a range of passing, dribbling with different hands and shooting.

Year 6 - Tag Rugby – Children are developing their understanding of the attacking and defending principles of invasion games. In all games activities, pupils have to think about how they use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition.  In tag rugby pupils do this by maintaining possession and moving the ball towards the try line to score.

 

 

Spring 1 -

Gymnastics is the PE topic for all years this half term.

Year 3 are developing balancing, rolling and jumping. They use these skills individually and in combination.

Year 4 are developing balancing, rolling, jumping and inverted movements and use these skills to create more complex sequences.

Year 5 are developing balancing, rolling, jumping and inverted movements. They explore partner relationships such as canon and synchronisation and matching and mirroring.

Year 6 are using their knowledge of compositional principles e.g. how to use variations in level, direction and pathway, how to combine and link actions, how to relate to a partner, when developing sequences.

Here are a range of photos from recent PE lessons.

Cross Country

A huge well done to Noah and Lily who have represented St Thomas at the Yorkshire Sport Cross Country event at Temple Newsam. They were both invited to the occasion after winning selection at the Wakefield event earlier this year. Both of them did amazing and Lily even managed to finish third in her race! Super work, we are very proud of your achievements!

Cross Country

A group of Year 5 and 6 children recently went to a Cross Country event. All the children were fantastic and were great ambassadors for St Thomas’.  Despite the cold weather, everyone had a brilliant time at the event!

Lily M was particularly impressive, winning her race by over 100 metres.

Well done everybody!
