Progression of knowledge and skills

Our overall aim is that children become proficient in a wide range of movement, games and team activities. As they move through the school, it is our intention that they become experienced in as many activities as possible and develop a core set of skills that they can apply to different activities and situations.

Each unit presents core skills which are built on across the sessions and the children are given opportunities to recap and develop during each session.

In Key Stage 1, the PE curriculum focuses on movement skills and ball handling with a development into small group and team games.

As they move into Key Stage 2, the children build on the knowledge and skills developed in Key Stage 1 and move into specific sports and games. By the end of Key Stage 2, the children will be proficient in a range of games and activities.
