Sports and PE at Kingsley

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure all our pupils:

  •  develop competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities
  •  are physically active for sustained periods of time
  •  engage in competitive sports and activities
  •  lead healthy, active lives

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the skills and processes under each Key stage heading.

Key stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co ordination individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive and cooperative physicalactivities in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should 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, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns

Key stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make and sequences of movement. they should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
