Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Click on this link to Sherrier's PE Position Statement
The National Curriculum together with its clear progression and development of skills from Key Stage 1 through to Key Stage 4 is fundamental to the progression of PE at Sherrier CE Primary. However, there are a number of progressions, thought processes and frameworks of analysis that also need to be considered.
At Sherrier we believe that children should follow and learn a lower order movement skill safely, repeat and refine it, before moving on to develop and adapt it to a higher order skill or technique. Therefore, basic core movement skills must be learned and performed with confidence first, with progressions being made as and when appropriate. So in those tasks the focus will remain the same. Also, the acquisition, development, selection, application and evaluation of skills will always be at the heart of our physical education curriculum.
Our Long Term Plan sets out to deliver these core movement skills progressively throughout EYFS, KS1 and KS2 as we follow the ‘Val Sabin’ and ‘Bright PE’ schemes of work, purchased as part of the PE premium.
Recognising the nature of progressive development and acknowledging that there are many different ways of presenting core skills we offer, with respect, a simple set of movement skill categories:-
Within each of these broad categories we can begin by identifying the simplest of skills and through variable applications of Time, Space, Weight and Flow reveal how they can be built upon, progressed and developed. This helps to encourage and enable pupils to become gradually more competent, confident and expert in their skills and techniques, so they will know, understand and be able to apply them in ever more complex activities and in evaluating their own and others’ work.
