PE & School Sports
Physical Education at Eldon Primary School
The underlying intent throughout the curriculum is to teach the children an understanding of a healthy active lifestyle and to equip them with the skills and qualities required to allow them to access quality movement throughout their school education and beyond.
The teaching staff utilise the Lancashire P.E. team P.E. Passport App for resources to plan, teach and assess the National Curriculum and meet Eldon’s intentions.
Early Years – The intent in foundation stage is to develop gross and fine motor skills. And to provide a foundation for Fundamental Movement and Handling Skills in Key Stage 1.
Key Stage 1 – The intent in Key Stage to is to master a range of Fundamental Movement and Handling skills to provide a foundation for their varied application in activities individually and in a group in year 2 and beyond. Other cognitive based skills are developed such as recalling and performing sequences – memory. And applying and discovering simple tactics – problem solving.
Key Stage 2 – The intent in lower Key Stage 2 is the application of Mastered skills and further cognitive applications. These are applied to small sided games, dance, gymnastics and athletics. For example the hop provides a stepping stone to a leap in dance and a hurdle in athletics.
Upper Key Stage 2- The intent in upper Key Stage 2 is to ready pupils for the Key Stage 3 curriculum. Leaving Eldon equipped to participate in any activity presented to them at secondary school. This involves relating conditioned games content to NGB formats, clarifying expectation for performance – bringing children to awareness of what their age group is capable of and how they can achieve that performance level too. The curriculum also promotes cognitive engagement further enabling problem solving skills and memory skills to improve.
Beyond the P.E. Curriculum Eldon offers opportunities to participate in fun and competitive activities and Sports at lunchtimes and afterschool.
P.E also takes a centre stage in whole school events such as Super Learning Days and themed weeks. We also take pride in developing Leadership skills in the pupils and host university students who specialise in P.E. too.
