Intent and Implementation
During the course of your child’s time at The Trinity Catholic Primary school we aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum, which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in activities.
Pupils start off in P.E by developing fundamental movement skills such as; running, jumping and throwing. This is to aid the children to become increasingly balanced, coordinated and agile. They will also start to compete in co-operative and competitive physical activities. This will include attacking and defending and also simple dance patterns.
As children progress into the Upper Key stage pupils will apply their skills and develop them into sequences of movements. For example, the running, throwing and catching they learnt in Key stage 1, they will build on these skills when playing games.
Children will have exposure to a variety of games such as cricket, football, netball, rounders and tennis. There will also be a more in-depth focus on developing flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. They will do this through dance, gymnastics and athletics. Children will also be given opportunities to develop and evaluate their performances. Swimming lessons are provided for Key stage 2.
Extra Curricular activities
We also offer a variety of extra-curricular clubs. We have a ‘street dance’ coach who comes into school, a ‘modern dance coach’, a fitness coach and coaches from Liverpool FC. We are also looking to provide rugby coaching through Rugby tots.
All children in Key Stage 2 are offered a residential ‘outdoor adventure’ activity break:
Y3 – CHET (2 days)
Y4 – CHET (2 days)
Y5 – Kingswood Colomendy (3 days)
Y6 – Acorn Adventures based in South Wales (5 days)
