Physical Education (Foundation)  

At Thorney Island Primary School, we believe that Physical Education plays an important role in a child’s overall development and promotes an understanding of a healthy lifestyle, teamwork and appropriate challenge. We aim to develop the children’s physical literacy, knowledge, and emotional and thinking skills for PE, sport and life.

Within PE lessons, we follow the Real PE scheme of learning. These lessons focus on fundamental movement skills (agility, balance, coordination), healthy competition and cooperative learning. Alongside this, children participate in team games (such as netball and rounders), athletics, dance and gymnastics.

Children are also encouraged to be physically active throughout the day. For example, through participation in the daily mile, music for dancing at break times, and a range of play equipment. There are opportunities for children to compete against other schools in a range of sports, and we also enjoy a traditional Sports Day which is fully supported by parents, other family members and the wider community.
