At Laceby Acres we understand the important role Physical Education has in the curriculum and in children’s lives. We work to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through the teaching of nutrition, health, games and sports. We believe Physical Education plays a vital role in children’s physical and emotional development as well as their health. At Laceby Acres we provide a safe but challenging environment for children to reach their full potential, learn different skills and become well rounded athletes with experience of a wide range of sports. We also want to develop the mind-set of positive competition in which we challenge and push ourselves from Early Years all the way to Year 6.
Our Physical Education curriculum aims to ensure our students:
- Have fun and experience a wide range of sports.
- Have the opportunity to engage in sports at their own level.
- Develop and build a range of different skills.
- Develop a good sporting attitude.
- Understand basic rules.
- Have the chance to experience competition in a positive way.
- Develop the foundation for lifelong physical activity.
At Laceby Acres we teach Physical Education following the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum in line with the Nation Curriculum and to maintain high standards of teaching and learning in Physical Education we follow the Striver P.E scheme from 2Simple. Through the Striver scheme we teach the four main aspects of physical education through a wide range of sports, activities and games.
- Games (Year 1 and 2)
- Tag Rugby
We also offer swimming in Year 4 and outdoor adventures in Year 6.
We ensure a progression of skills through the school with children building on skills taught from KS1 to KS2 as mapped out in our long term planning document. We want to help shape, improve and grow our children’s strength, flexibility, endurance, coordination, teamwork skills, competitive attitude and their overall health.
