Wenlock C of E Junior School

Physical Education

20% of our Year 6 children can comfortably swim 25 metres or more.

 

At Wenlock the physical education curriculum is planned using the physical literacy framework to ensure the children have a depth of understanding.


Pupils are introduced to the basic principles and continue to work on improving the quality of these skills throughout their time at the school. The learnt skills are applied to a variety of different situations both passive and competitive. Hybrid games and small sided games are used alongside individual and group practices to enhance the learning process.


Curriculum Areas Covered:

  • Invasion Games
  • Net-Wall Games
  • Dance
  • Striking and Fielding
  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming
  • Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Health Related Exercise
  • Athletics

 

In addition, year groups will have focused time working towards the Sainsbury's School Games competitions.
