Intent: What we want to achieve through PE teaching
At Laceyfields Academy, our intent when teaching Physical Education is that our children will enjoy a range of sporting activities that develop their fitness and co-ordination and also, embed qualities such as fairness and respect, in line with our school values.
Implementation – How we do it here
At Laceyfields, we work in partnership with Amber Valley Sports to deliver a curriculum based on gymnastics, ball skills and dance. We have a sports coach who delivers sessions to all the children and runs a weekly after school club available to children in KS1. We also have cricket coaching from Derbyshire Cricket Foundation for one half-term a year. The children improve in moving their bodies in different ways to help with balance, co-ordination and situational awareness. They create short sequences of movements in gymnastics and dance which show beginnings and ends. They improve gross motor skills by moving their bodies at different speeds and heights thus using and strengthening various muscle groups. Children develop and hand-eye co-ordination through catching, throwing, striking and fielding. Children learn how their bodies feel when they exercise and understand the importance of warm-ups and cool-downs to avoid injury.
Impact: How we will see effective PE teaching
Our children will be ready for the next stage in their education by being confidently able to throw and catch balls of varying sizes. They will be able to use a variety of equipment to strike with and know which sports they belong to. They will be able to apply what they learn in PE lessons to the playground when they play independently, being aware of others around then to avoid injury. They will have a love for sporting activities which will foster active and healthy life-styles.
