Mrs Lucy Maydew
At Hasland Infant School our PE curriculum aims to support children’s physical development and allows them to learn and build on fundamental movement skills from nursery to Year 2. Our intention is for them to enjoy physical activity, develop control, coordination, agility, strength and balance while having fun and encouraging natural talent.
We want them to enjoy an active life style therefore giving them a healthy body, a healthy mind and to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our PE lessons help improve fitness, posture, balance and self-esteem.
By the time they leave Hasland Infant School our intention is that the children will enjoy being physically active. They will be able to create sequences, move their bodies with control, perform simple dance routines and understand how to show mood and feeling. Children will be able to play and understand the rules of team games, developing simple tactics and be able to cooperate effectively with others.
We expect all children to:
be aware of the importance of a healthy active lifestyle;
develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination;
work and play with others in a range of group situations;
develop the way they perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities;
increase their ability to use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control of their performance;
be taught to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise;
develop an enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination;
develop an understanding of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success.
experience games outside which therefore will encourage them to do the same out of school.
develop fundamental movement skills
As well as teaching gymnastics, dance and games our children also follow the real PE curriculum for their PE provision. Please see the planning and progression documents below.
Curriculum enrichment activities such as multicultural weeks, Sports Day, personal challenges, intra- and inter-school competitions, sports leadership opportunities and local events and festivals provide children with inspirational experiences where they can apply and build on the skills they have learnt.
We hold an application and interview process for year 2 children to become a ‘playtime leader’. The successful candidates are trained by Shape Partnership so they are able to lead and run physical activities for the rest of the school at lunchtimes. We are very lucky to have such a passionate, enthusiastic and positive group of children to lead us and help us have fun when taking part in physical activities at lunchtime.
At playtime we have playtime pals who make sure everyone has someone to play with, they monitor and help with accidents and they encourage positive active play. Here is our wonderful team:
