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 children in years 2-4, 'balanceability' learn to ride programme (reception children) and leadership modules (UKS2). 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 in the year (often linked to topic work such as map reading).
Throughout the programme we incorporate the school’s values of Achieve, Create, Enjoy; health awareness and wellbeing as well as developing spiritual, moral, social and cultural values where relevant. Particular areas would be:
Use of imagination and creativity in their learning (gymnastics and dance)
Willingness to reflect on their experiences (gymnastics and dance)
Understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions (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)
