Subject Leader: Mr A Pinnock

Our Physical Education curriculum is designed to give all children the opportunities to develop their love of sport and physical activity. Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. The planning and sequencing of our curriculum enables pupils to build on previous learning and enables children to know more, remember more and do more, so they can perform with increasing confidence and competence in a range of  physical activities. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities help children build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. 

As a Catholic school, the teachings of the gospels are at the heart of everything we do. This leads our Physical Education curriculum to be rooted in love for one another and teaches our children to participate in sport and physical activities respectfully, demonstrating perseverance, teamwork and fair-play. 

We provide opportunities:

  • that enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and coordination
  • that encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations
  • that develop the way children perform skills, and apply rules for different activities
  • that show children how to improve the quality and control of their performance
  • that teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise
  • that develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination
  • that develop an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities, and how to evaluate their own success
  • that inspire the children to have a love of learning for physical activity.
  • that create opportunities for children to compete against others showing respect and fair play.

Curriculum Overview

Autumn Term 2021

Special Events Autumn 2021

This term the children have all had fun participating in the North Worcestershire Santa Dash 2021. We all had fun running, skipping, galloping and dancing around the playground to Christmas music to help promote the importance of physical activity. The children looked fab in their Christmas jumpers, dresses, Santa hats and reindeer headbands. Over the past couple of weeks, the children have also been competing in our very first Elf Olympics! The children competed in their house teams and took part in three events, the snowball roll, carry the pudding and the reindeer relay! It was very closely contested. It was so close we had a tie for 1st place between St Andrews and St Davids! Well done to everybody for joining in with such enthusiasm

KS1 and Reception took part in three different activities in the Infant Agility and KS2 had 5 challenges in the Year 3/4 Pentathlon challenge.

After submitting hundreds of results I am delighted to announce that St Peter’s managed to win both the overall Team Awards for the Infant Agility and Year 3/4 Pentathlon in our local area! Not only did we win in our area, but in the whole of Worcestershire we came 3rd in the Infant Agility and 2nd overall in the Year 3/4 Pentathlon.

A massive thank you to all the children for trying their best and giving it their all throughout the challenges, you should all be extremely proud of yourselves! Well done! Take a look at the results below:
