PE at Stoke Park Infant School, provides a progressive curriculum which enables children to develop their physical literacy, as well as develop their emotional and thinking skills. Our curriculum covers the current Statutory Orders of the National Curriculum as well as taking into account individual interests and needs.
In order for the children to receive high quality lessons, where learning builds upon prior knowledge and skills, children in Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) are timetabled for 2, 1 hour sessions. In Foundation Stage (Year R), children receive daily access to activities indoors and outdoors that build upon their fine and gross motor development as well as a one hour PE lesson each week.
To enable us to do this, we use a scheme of work called 'real PE' by Create Development.
'real PE' is a unique, child-centred approach that transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge EVERY child at Stoke Park Infant School. It provides fun and simple to follow Schemes of Work and supports our Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 practitioners, giving them the confidence and skills to deliver high quality PE. It is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. It places the learner at the heart of what we do with the ultimate goal of children feeling valued, included, challenged and supported in their learning.
The 'real PE' scheme is used throughout the school for one lesson a week. In Key Stage One the other lesson consists of linking the skills taught in Real PE to sports and dance. We have currently using 'real Gym' to compliment our use of 'real PE' and 'Real Dance' is coming to us later this year.
