Physical Education:Key Stage 3

Subject Content: Year 7

During Year 7 the main focus is to introduce the basic skills needed for the activities listed in the attached Programme of Study.

These skills will range from individual body management to team skills.
Students will perform their skills in isolation as well as in competitive situations.
Students will be given the opportunity to become players and officials when the situation arises.
Opportunities to practice their skills further will be available at lunchtime and after school clubs.

For the first three weeks of the year, all Year 7 students will be put through a battery of tests. These will range from measuring fitness levels through to individual skill level tests in a number of different scenarios. Once the tests are completed, each student will be given a baseline assessment level together with a SMART target. Students will then move on to their activities, which for this term will be Football, Badminton, Netball and Hockey. In Term 2 students will move onto Fitness and  Rugby. In the summer term students will try Athletics, Softball and Rounders.

 

Subject Content: Year 8

At this stage students will be performing and applying the basic skills more consistently whilst acquiring more complex skills.
They will also begin to acquire the skills needed to be able to analyse and evaluate performance.  
Students will be given the opportunity to become players and officials when the situation arises.
They will perform their skills in isolation as well as in competitive situations.
Opportunities to practice their skills further will be available at lunchtime and after school clubs.

In Term 1 students will look at Football, Badminton, Netball and Hockey; Term 2 will provide students with the opportunity to do Fitness, Rugby, Badminton and Trampolining and in the summer term students will do Athletics, Softball and Rounders.

In Term 1 students will develop their skills in Badminton, Football and Netball followed by Basketball, Rugby, Fitness and Trampolining in the spring term. In Term 3 students will participate in Athletics, Softball and Rounders.

KS3 Skills Taught

P.E. is predominantly a ‘doing’ subject at all times, students are encouraged to experience the different roles that sport offers:

Performer
Official
Coach

However, when practically participating the Department seeks to encourage the learning process to take place through action, sensation and observation. 
The department encourages all students to be physically active, to plan and evaluate their performances across the curriculum.  As such, each student should not only be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding mainly through physical actions, but also through other mediums of written and verbal forms.  In turn, they will improve their skill acquisition, knowledge, personal achievement (by goal setting) and terminology of the activities studied.  Consequently, each pupil may reach his/her full potential in an enjoyable, fun and safe environment.

Central to our aims is that all Student are educated in the benefits of leading an active healthy lifestyle. Further opportunities to participate in sport are available to all students during lunchtime and after school clubs/fixtures.

Subject content: Year 10

During Year 10, pupils will further develop their personal leadership skills. They will then be encouraged to increasingly use these leadership skills to facilitate their own learning, reflecting on their own and others’ performance. Using this knowledge, they will make the necessary adaptations for future sessions. The main aim at Year 10 is that all pupils are educated in the benefits of leading an active healthy lifestyle. A further opportunity to participate in sport is available to all pupils during lunchtime and after school clubs/fixtures.

Subject content: Year 11

All Year 11 students follow an options programme where they choose which sports to participate in.  These sports will last for approximately a half term before they choose again.There will always be a mixture of individual and team sports on offer. Again, students may wish to opt out of becoming a player and may choose to be an official or coach in a particular sport.  Whilst they are encouraged and guided to choose a range of sports and roles, the final decision rests with the individual.
