An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. 2 Timothy 2:5
Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities.
Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking about, then selecting and applying skills. It promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable pupils to make informed choices about purposeful, physical activity throughout their lives.
At Blessed Robert Widmerpool we recognise the importance PE plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in Physical Education. The aim of our chosen PE scheme of work (Get Set 4 PE) is to develop children’s basic physical competencies, build confidence in their ability and build the foundations for a lifelong love of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. PE lessons encourage children to compete against themselves and others whilst being challenged to improve their physical, social, emotional and thinking skills. These skills are embedded in the heart of our planning. ‘Get Set 4 PE’ focusses on developing children’s sporting skills in a sequenced and progressive manner through modelling, practising and application. Children also have a choice of challenges to choose from within their lessons allowing them to achieve their own personal best.
