Fernhurst Primary School

PE (physical education)

PE is taught twice weekly.  

We use Get Set 4 PE, a Each lesson plan has progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage your pupils, allowing them to explore and develop skills and embed knowledge. The lessons are accompanied by supporting resources including resource cards, skills videos and music. Teaching points appear throughout to help teachers with their subject knowledge and differentiation tasks provide activities with simple changes to appropriately challenge all of your pupils. We have a specialist sports coach on our staff team who delivers our PE lessons.  

The one Big Idea, the one threshold concept in PE is to :  

Develop practical skills in order to participate, compete and lead a healthy lifestyle.

This is delivered through:

  • Team Building
  • Fundamental skills like ball skills, net and wall, striking and fielding and fitness
  • Specific sports like cricket, handball, tag rugby, tennis, hockey, basketball
  • A range of athletics, gymnastics and dance.
  • Swimming (in Y3/4)
  • Outdoor Learning experiences.

To enable our pupils to embed their learning, we take part in sporting activities within the local area.  This allows pupils to compete and play against a wide range of people and develop their sportsmanship. 

Below you will find our planning overview and a range of fundamental movement skills games and activities that you might like to try at home.
