PE curriculum - Silver thread: Physical and social resilience

Twyning follows the highly recommended 'Get set for PE' scheme of work for Physical Education. This scheme reflects the National Curriculum requirements, focusing on athletics, dance, gymnastics, swimming, games and outdoor and adventurous activities.

Swimming is taught to all children in years 2,3 and 4; the 'Balanceability' learn to ride programme for all reception children ; and leadership modules for Y5 and 6.

Children have the opportunity to go on a 3-day residential in years 5 and 6 and a 2-day residential in years 3 and 4. Outdoor education opportunities are incorporated within the wider curriculum (often linked to topic work such as map reading).

Throughout the programme, we incorporate the school’s values of Achieve, Create, Enjoy along with health awareness and wellbeing. Focus is also placed upon developing spiritual, moral, social and cultural values. Particular areas would be:


Use of imagination and creativity in pupil learning in gymnastics and dance
Willingness to reflect on their experiences (gymnastics and dance)


Understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions within competitive games


Willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings, including volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively (games) and extra-curricular/inter-school activities


Willingness to participate in and respond positively to sporting opportunities (curricular and extra-curricular/inter-school activities)
