Curriculum focus of Sports Premium Grant
The school has focused its additional support on developing class teacher expertise and coaching skills with an increased range of sports available. There has been additional investment in PE equipment including scooters and bikes for use at lunchtime and specialised equipment for PE lessons.
The 'Real PE' programme is a new initiative that focuses on helping children to develop fundamental movement skills - agility, balance and coordination. These skills are the building blocks that underpin the ability to play and be involved in different sports and activities and it is therefore essential that every child masters these skills first. 'Real PE' involves using interactive warm-ups and creative games that build upon these skills, ready for children to use in sporting activities. Another interesting aspect to 'Real PE' is the link to six multi-abilities which are developed over the year. These include physical, social, personal, health and fitness, cognitive and creative abilities, all of which underpin children becoming all rounded sports people and athletes.
'It's a great scheme that's really easy to follow and really versatile. The skills cards can be combined with other areas of the curriculum and the children show great enjoyment when using them to guide their own learning.' Miss Forbes, class teacher.
'The skills cards are great and I like how they challenge what my body can do.' Abbey.
'I really like it as there are new games to play and they are different to what we normally play and are so creative.' James
