At Wynndale Primary School we recognise the importance of a purposeful, personalised and participative PE curriculum.
Our aim at Wynndale is to:
- Explore a range of competitive and inclusive sporting activities.
- Inspire our pupils to become physically and mentally fit athletes.
- Spark by igniting a passion for the key values underpinning our PE curriculum (teamwork, determination, resilience and sportsmanship).
- Deepen our children’s sporting experiences by providing a range of opportunities both in school and through extra-curricular activities.
An athlete at Wynndale will be inspired to enjoy, succeed and excel in a range of physically demanding activities. Through an engaging and inclusive curriculum, we will ensure that all pupils leave feeling physically confident. They will have with a clear understanding of what contributes to ensuring, as an athlete, they are physically and mentally fit.
Throughout both Key Stage 1 and 2, our athletes will develop fundamental skills taught through the following areas; competitive games, movement and dance, striking and fielding. Our athletes will be driven to engage competitively; both against themselves and their peers; through co-operative physical activities. Over the year, pupils will access a broad and varied curriculum and will take part in a variety of games, gymnastic and dance-based activities. Year 4 pupils will be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently.
Children have 2 hours of PE a week. One lesson is led by an external sports coach with assistance from class teachers to build their knowledge and ways of teaching PE. We also have sports coaches who run activities during lunchtime to develop and build on children’s skills. At Wynndale we make a real effort to try to complete the daily mile to improve the physical and mental health of children and helps improve children’s focus in the classroom.
We strive and aim for children to leave us with key concepts of teamwork, determination, resilience and sportsmanship through physical activity. They understand about healthy competition and fair play. Our children understand the strong link between being physically and mentally healthy. They should leave Wynndale with a passion and desire to be involved with sports and fitness to contribute to a healthy and active lifestyle.
