Scheme of Work and Progression

Although year groups will cover the same sports (in line with the competition calendar), a clear progression pathway has been identified through a scheme of work. The curriculum design has been planned so that skills are built on year by year.

Lessons taught will follow the scheme of work identified above providing the children with a well-rounded, holistic PE curriculum. However, the second hour of PE will have a health focus with lessons deliberately designed to have high intensity activities and short, intense bursts of exercise to improve the cognitive thought process and the children’s working memory as well as participating in tasks designed to improve children’s knowledge and vocabulary of the body including organs, muscles and body parts crucial to PE and exercise.
