Physical Education


Subject Overview

Physical education applies a holistic approach to the concept of physical activity for young people. It recognises the physical, mental, emotional, and social dimensions of human movement, and emphasises the contribution of physical activity to the promotion of individual and group well-being.
Learning in physical education involves the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills, and attitudes central to physical education, together with recognition of its potential for integration with other curriculum areas.

Our Vision and Aim for Physical Education

"Together Everyone Achieves More'

At St Augustine's we believe that a high quality Physical Education programme is essential in order to develop the child into a well-rounded, future-ready individual targeting their physical, cognitive, social and emotional well-being. We aim to raise the physical activity levels of the whole school through the provision of a supportive environment conducive to the promotion of physical activity. Raising the profile of physical activity throughout the school and encouraging cross curricular links is an important part of our vision. We aim to promote positive attitudes towards participation in physical activity that inspire life-long learners while increasing their knowledge and understanding of the importance of physical education, physical activity and sports. From this, we hope to nurture young minds into confident, articulate and well-rounded citizens where everyone feels valued, respected and included whilst improving mental health and developing social skills.


28th September - 2nd October

We had an eventful week of our students coming to school on either their bikes or scooters'. The Bike to School scheme was a full week of trying to get as many children to in the school to travel to school in a amore healthier and active way. The pictures below show how many bikes we had each day, although the rain came over the week it didn't stop us!


We are starting monthly intra-school competitions with all of our KS1-2 classes. Mr. Warran has come up with some fabulous fun activities and races to enjoy and we have some images below of our children racing against each other. Also one of Mr. Warran hard at work :D

This week in PE we have the Foundation  class developing their balancing and coordination skills that Mr. Warran delivered.

Here we have the class attempting to balance a bean bag on their head and foot to drop it in the bucket.

While we've been missing year 1 during their isolation, Mr. Warran hasn't giving them any rest by sending some small PE sessions to be getting on with. Here we have some of our year 1 children giving it there best and having fun :)

see you on Friday year 1 :D

As it's the festive season, Mr. Warran cam up with some fantastic Christmas themed games for our reception class....which they enjoyed soooooooooo much :)

Even though we don't have all of our classes in, we are still carrying on our intra-school tournaments

Here we have a foundation class discovering their balancing skills, we are very impressed with what they came up with :)

Lockdown PE

Even though we are on lockdown and the majority of our children are unable to come in school. Mr. Warran is determined to keep the children active by setting them PE challenges and doing LIVE PE sessions every Wednesday :)

Here we David who is attempting and successfully doing one of the PE challenges set by Mr. Warran. Having to balance and object on his foot while rotating.


Here we have Connor Yr6 and Jaiden Yr5 showing a great example of another PE challenge set for their class mates. In this challenge they are working on hand eye coordination and reaction.


Here we have Chelsea from year 3. Mr. Warran is soooooo pleased that Chelsea is joining in with the PE videos and doing it with a smile :D I think she was enjoying it that much she couldn't stay on her feet!


It's here, it's LIVE, it's Mr. Warran's Silly Shirt PE Day LIVE for your entertainment.....and fitness :P

As you can see year 1/2/3 are working very hard doing their karate kicks and year 4/5/6 doing their squats in their live session. We're very proud how many joined in and look forward to the next one :)

Year 1 putting in their star jumps and surfing squats in recorded and live PE sessions. 

Also we got some of our children who are attending school to take part in their classroom. Year 3 looked like they were definitely enjoying themselves, which always puts a smile on Mr. Warran's face :D
