Reaching new horizons



PE and Sport at Sea View

The purpose of Physical Education

 A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.




The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  •  develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  •  are physically active for sustained periods of time
  •  engage in competitive sports and activities
  •  lead healthy, active lives.



Developing our core strength and co-ordination through yoga and zumba

We went on a Chinese parade and an Autumn walk.

Practising our ball skills, throwing, kicking and catching.

We use outdoor space to run, climb, balance and travel in a range of ways.


Physical activity is vital in early child development. Gross and fine motor experiences develop through games and indoor and outdoor activities. Through these activities, the children develop their core strength, stability, balance, spatial awareness, co-ordination and agility. 

We experimented with ways of travelling and balancing, such as different ways of moving across and over a bench. This included balancing in different ways and landing safely.

We incorporated dance into PE with the theme of Chinese New Year and used streamers to travel copying and repeating movements . We explored actions for fireworks, dragon and tiger.We were learning to change the speed of my actions based on the music. Children were encouraged to think about choosing fast actions when the music is fast and slow actions when the music is slow.

We have a coach in PE and we are learning to move a ball in a range of ways by throwing, catching, batting and striking.

Year One

This term we are learning gymnastic skills! We have learnt to make different shapes with our bodies (tuck, straddle, and pike). We have learnt to balance and jump using equipment such as the beam, ladder and pommel. 

Watch Ollie show off his climbing, balancing and jumping sklls!

We love to roll, jump and climb during our gymnastic lessons.

Year Two

Year 2 took part in an orienteering day to introduce themselves to the skills they will develop when they reach KS2. We learned how to use directions and took part in an exciting trail around the school grounds.

Throwing and catching

We have been developing our skills of throwing and catching using different games and challenges. We have looked at power stances for the best throws and looked at how to best throw and catch different balls.

Year Three

Let’s dance!

The children enjoy working with our dance coach to practice, develop and understand movement.  We work on balance as a core skill throughout our sessions as well as being creative with our movements.  It’s also a lot of fun! 


Year Four

In the Autumn term we enjoyed our swimming lessons! 

In the Spring term we have taken part in dance lessons with a coach and are now practicing our athletic skills of throwing, running and jumping.

Year Five

In year 5, we have enjoyed a varied and exciting PE curriculum this year including swimming, gymnastics, ball games and our daily mile. The children have brought huge enthusiasm and commitment to all our PE sessions.


This term, we have been lucky enough to be able to use the fantastic facilities at Haven Point to practice our swimming. The children have focused upon front crawl and backstroke, making great progress in a very short time. At the end of each session, the children have got the balls, rings and floats out to have a lot of fun.


Mrs Mosley's class have been getting to grips with the game of badminton. So far they have learnt how to hold a badminton racket and perfected the best technique for hitting the shuttlecock. Already, there have been some fantastic rallies and a whole lot of fun.


We have been extremely lucky in year 5 to have had access to a gymnastics coach. During these sessions, we have used a variety of apparatus to practice balancing, jumping and climbing. In particular, the children have loved the climbing frame displaying a head for heights and no fear!

Year Six

We have had the opportunity to play a competitive game of rounders outdoors.
