PE at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Academy:
At St. John’s, our aim in physical education is to inspire all pupils through a high quality, broad curriculum. It is important that our children are healthy and enjoy P.E, and we want our children to develop a range of skills to broaden their knowledge and allow them to enjoy an active lifestyle.
We will teach the key concepts of agility, balance, co-ordination, competition, movement, throwing and catching, health and fitness. When teaching these concepts, we aim for all the children of St John’s to develop a love of movement and keeping active.
Our vision is that all of our pupils will:
- Develop a love of P.E and explore all the key concepts.
- Engage in their P.E lessons every week and explore their talents and ideas.
- Develop a ‘have a go’ attitude and have a willingness to take part.
- Be encouraged to engage in competitive sports and activities.
- Work well both individually and as part of a team.
We are proud to work alongside children at our collegiate network schools, taking part in inter-school competitions throughout the year in a variety of sports and activities.
So far this year we have competed in Football, Basketball, Handball with our key stage 2 children.
Within PE at the Newman Catholic collegiate, we assess and coach children to achieve their best, and to participate fully with a positive attitude and willingness to grow and learn. In addition we ensure children are achieving age-related targets for their year group, through the use of Statements of Progress.
During breaktimes we are proud of our year six children who have undertaken Sports Leader training with Mr Sigley from the Newman Catholic Collegiate, who spend time providing games and activities on the playground to children from across different year groups. So far this year that have led sports and games such as Football, Basketball, Parachute Games, Obstacle Courses, Handball and Relay Races.
