Early Years PE
Early Years PE is implemented by the use of a carousel method. The carousel method enables pupils to access a variety of activities enhancing their capabilities across a whole range of skills. Pupils are allowed to challenge themselves and explore their own capabilities by moving from one activity to another. The activities within the carousel will primarily be multi-skill activities. Multi-skills enable the teacher to provide a wide range of non-sport specific games and activities which allow the pupils to develop their skills and attributes, which can then be applied to a range of sports.
Covers a broad curriculum including: Striking and fielding, Multi-skills, Movement Composition, Games (Moving and Handling, Invasion and Net) and Athletics. For these activities, each year group will challenge themselves by participating in lessons suitably planned for their year group. Throughout each of the units, students will have multiple opportunities for further enhancement of their skill set - whether physically, technically or tactically - by working individually, as well as in teams. Students have opportunities to apply their learned skills through competition. Using competition, students can challenge themselves and further their own abilities using their innate sense of pride. Competitions such as sports day and external tournaments such as Canton Cup Football Tournament provide students the opportunity to be part of a team and develop a sense of balance. During PE, students consistently develop their personal-social skills: cooperation, empathy, encouragement, teamwork and respect – through being around and interacting with their peers. Through continuous physical activity, students will develop an awareness towards their own abilities by recognizing their strengths, limitations and challenges, as well as their ability to cope successfully with situations of change and adversity.
