PE at Bushy Hill will encourage and aid children to develop fundamental movement skills and help them access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination. The children will engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations. They will learn to communicate, collaborate and compete with each other in a positive and encouraging environment.
The children will learn to apply fundamental skills by playing traditional and non-traditional competitive games; for example, badminton, cricket, football, hockey, netball and tennis. They will also develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through gymnastics and dance and take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges during residential trips.
Children will be encouraged to develop into well rounded sportsmen and women and become independent learners; being able to compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
