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.

BIKE TO SCHOOL WEEK

27th September - 1st October

We had an eventful week with all the rain this time, but our students have really done well 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 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!

WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART!

This week it was a world wide event of European Sports Week. This is when schools across the world celebrate sport, the children took part in familiar sports like football, tag rugby, basketball. They also come up with other activities that they designed with Mr. Warran. 

European Sports Day

 24/09/21

This week in PE we have the year 1 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.

Year 5 gymnastics lessons

Our year 5 class have been reintroducing themselves to gymnastics movements including balance jumps, and rolls. Here we have some videos coming to the end of our first term half term with some of the three movements put together. 

Year 6 Athletics Competition

This term we had a fantastic athletics team. This great bunch represented  St-Augustines so well, not only did they show fantastic sportsmanship and praised everyone who took part. They put 110% effort in every event they did. Mr. Warran and Mr. Reynolds are very proud of the team and are excited for the next competition in the new year!  

Below are some brilliant videos and photos of the event.
