KEEP CALM AND LOVE PE!
We have been awarded the SILVER School Games award 2018-19
At Highfield we endeavour to meet the two hours of PE teaching required each week.
In KS1, children master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. They participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending. They also learn to perform dances using simple movement patterns.
In KS2 children improve their running, jumping, throwing and catching skills. They play competitive games for example basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis, learning to apply the tactics for attacking and defending. They develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through athletics and gymnastics. They perform dances using a range of movement patterns. They also take part in outdoor and adventurous activities such as orienteering which provides individual and team challenges.
