Sports and P.E
The core intention of our physical education curriculum is to develop children’s fundamental movement skills; however, the key aim is not to develop isolated pockets of skills but to develop webs of interrelated skills. At Nonsuch Primary School, physical education focuses on a range of physical activities whereby these skills can be built upon throughout the units. We have key threads that run through the physical education curriculum. These include gymnastics, swimming, running, jumping and throwing, dance, OAA, attacking, defending and shooting, and hitting, catching and running. By carefully mapping these threads across the curriculum and revisiting them in different learning sequences, children will master physical movements. They will have the opportunity to use these to engage in competitive sports and everyday activities.
Pupils in Years 4,5 and 6 go swimming for a term each at Linden Road swimming baths where they are able to work towards achieving the required standard, ready to go to secondary school.
We also hold a sports day during the summer term where pupils take part in a range of events in teams
Our after school PE clubs include football, dance, table tennis, rugby, cricket, netball and multi-sports amongst others.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural PE
We focus on teaching children values through sport and competition. We teach the values of passion, belief, respect, determination, honesty and teamwork. Children have many opportunities to take part in after school clubs and competitions with children from around the city.
