What our curriculum looks like:
Our curriculum uses Active Learning’s sequence of lessons, which provides an in-depth coverage of the content from the National Curriculum. Children learn to develop their gross and fine motor skills in the Early Years. This equips pupils with the skills needed to prepare them for invasion games, dance, gymnastics, athletics, tennis, and cricket which are all taught in Key Stage 1. These skills are then further developed in Key Stage 2 where pupils play in competitive games applying basic principles suitable for attacking and defending; develop flexibility, control, and balance; and perform dances using a range of movement patterns. Our curriculum also offers outdoor adventurous activity, where all KS2 pupils take part in climbing. In addition to this, our year 6 pupils experience a range of adventurous sports such as archery, compass trails, caving and high ropes on the residential school journey.
Swimming lessons are also taught to classes in Key Stage 2 to increase the number of pupils who can confidently swim 25m by the end of year 6.
