We value the importance of Physical Education at St John’s. To ensure our lessons are effective and provide the right amount of challenge, all of our lessons in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two are led by a qualified sports coach or a class teacher. Mr Qualter, our new sports coach, has joined us this year and is supported by Miss Chapman in helping deliver a successful PE curriculum.
All children in Key Stage Two have 2 hours of PE each week, whatever the weather! The children enjoy their PE lessons inside the school hall for 1 hour each week and outside on our playgrounds and field for the other hour. Key Stage one children have one PE lesson a week but also have access to physical activity throughout the day in provision.
Our Early Years children have the opportunity to be physically active all day, every day. We have a fantastic outdoor area for them to use, including a fitness trail with balance beams and monkey bars, and an Early Years area with a climbing wall and rope swing. Whatever the weather, our children are able to burn off some energy outdoors!
At St John’s, we like to provide children with new, adventurous activities through our PE curriculum. This year, KS2 are participating in a variety of off-site activities including rock climbing, tennis, swimming and gymnastics. As well as these sessions in PE time, we offer our children the chance to be competitive in physical activity. The school took part in a variety of competitive sports last year and we hope to build upon their success this year.
