We thrive and achieve together.

Physical Education

At Brettenham, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils with increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. The selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, will help pupils, irrespective of their innate ability, enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential and take part in lifelong physical activity. 

Curriculum

Reception: Stability skills and Aesthetic movement 

The children will develop body awareness and the ability to interpret a variety of stimuli through Movement focused on dance and gymnastics. 

KS1: Dance

This term, the children will explore basic body actions e.g. jumping, shapes and travel, and use different parts of their body to make movements. They create and repeat short dances inspired by themes. Children will think about how to use movements to communicate ideas, moods and feelings.

I

 

KS2: Athletics 

This term the children will explore running, jumping and throwing activities and take part in simple challenges and competitions. They experiment with different ways of travelling, throwing and jumping, increasing their awareness of speed and distance. 

As in all athletic activities, children think about how to achieve the greatest possible speed, height, distance or accuracy. 

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should also develop an understanding of how to improve in athletics and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. 

The children will also be taught how to organise and play athletic activities safely and how to look after equipment.

Sports personality of the year 2023

  Congratulations to all the nominees this year and the winner is.........

Ijaz is a worthy winner. He displays not only the physical qualities we look for but also his thinking. He is able to problem-solve when faced with tactical and compositional problems and shares these ideas with the people he is working with. He does this in such an articulate way that everyone he works with excels in PE.

Not only has he got a brilliant mind, he is socially so gentle, kind and supportive to all the children he works with. He makes them feel at ease, which allows them to take risks when working with him without the worry of making mistakes. This is something that I have seen Ijaz develop over the last couple of years as his confidence in PE has grown.

Lastly, this young man epitomises the word standards, he sets the bar so high for himself in any challenge he faces. This is a trait that will carry him through school and on to great things.

Congratulations Ijaz, you are the 2023 Sports Personality of the year!
