Our physical education curriculum aims to inspire all children to succeed in developing their fundamental movement skills and enables children to be physically and mentally confident to support health and wellbeing. Children are encouraged to achieve their personal best. All children have the opportunity to attend a festival or competition to learn new skills, gain experience and compete in sport. Children also compete in the intra-house competitions to build respect, healthy competition, honesty, passion, teamwork and determination. The fundamental skills-based curriculum we implement at Caedmon Primary School allows children to develop essential skills, which will assist them in accessing all different sports rather than just a single activity. Furthermore, this will support children throughout their lifetime of physical activity as these skills are transferable in all aspects of daily life.
Our PE curriculum is taught through the key concepts of: Fundamental Movement Skills; Cognitive Abilities; Strength and Fitness; Healthy Mind & Body; Leadership and Teamwork.
Our Year 5 Playground Leaders are responsible for organising, setting up and delivering fun playground activities. Their role is to inspire other children to move more, interact with others and support their peers to develop their fundamental movement skills. The leaders recieve training from Mr. Collantine and the School Sports Partnership to develop their leadership, communication skills and improve their activity knowledge.
Our Sports Ambassadors help promote physical activity in school. They work alongside Mr. Collantine to orgainse playground activities, deliver after school clubs, attend sporting festivals with other year groups and create a physical activity news blog. The Sports Ambassadors are positive role models, have a fantastic attitude towards learning and developing physical activity and inspire others to be the best they can be.
