Physical Education (PE)

 

Physical activity promotes emotional well-being and good health, setting the foundations for good habits into adulthood.  Children participate in 2 hours of Curriculum PE and extra-curricular PE activities per week, both inside and outside.

PE lessons are taught by class teachers and specialist coaches, covering invasion games, net and wall games, fielding games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor adventurous activities.  During their time in KS2, children will also attend the Dolphin Centre for weekly swimming lessons, covering the basics of the 4 strokes and personal safety in the water.

Children are provided with various opportunities to join clubs and represent the school at sports festivals and competitive events.  We are affiliated to the Darlington Schools Sports Partnership (DSSP) and Go Well school sports partnership.

The school benefits from extensive sporting facilities, including a large playground and playing field with athletics track and a variety of keep-fit stations.  Pupils are also able to access the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) for PE lessons and leisure time during breaks.

Play equipment chosen by the PE Curriculum Team is available on the yard during breaks. This includes; stilts, a variety of balls, French skipping, a variety of bats and balls, howlers and skipping ropes. A recent addition to the school amenities is the ‘red mile’ track.  Each class completes several laps at least 3 times per week.

To further support our ’60 active minutes’ agenda, children partake in personal challenges and fun exercises, such as Go Noodle, at times during the school day.

EYFS Festival of Agility

On Monday 13th June, some of the Reception children took part in a festival of agility
and balance at Eastbourne Sports Complex. The children were so excited! Once
split into two groups, they took part in six different activities in which they had to use
their balance skills, their listening skills, their speed and agility. Everyone had a great
time and was a great ambassador for Firthmoor Primary.
