PE at Jubilee
Subject leader: Megan Gwenlan
At Jubilee we recognise the importance of giving all children the opportunity to live a healthy and active life. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical activities - a positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age builds a lifetime habit of participation.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and it has been shown that children who are more physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers.
We want to ensure all children get into the habit of playing and enjoying sport as daily activity can improve behaviour, enhance academic achievement and instil confidence, determination and discipline.
At Jubilee we follow the National Curriculum for P.E. using the scheme Moving Matters. Moving Matters ensures we are delivering high quality teaching and learning while allowing the children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical activity. Every child participates in competitive and individual sports, and each half term children are taught two sequence of lessons. Key skills are taught all the way through the school and progression of skills and language is ensured by using the skills map provided by Moving Matters.
In EYFS children are taught fundamental movements through the use of fun and engaging lessons linked to stories and role play. This is built on in Key Stage 1 where fundamental movements are developed further by teaching them in isolation and within a range of PE activities. They then begin to apply these in game play. Moving into KS2, the key skills are practised and applied to sports such as tennis, football, basketball, netball and tag rugby.
Individual sports such as gymnastics and dance are taught throughout the school where children are given opportunities to perform in front of the class.
Qualified sports coaches deliver after school clubs for Family Football, boys and girls football clubs, Multi Sports and dance.
