P.E. Curriculum Map

Over the last few years Amesbury Primary has gained an excellent reputation in the local area for sporting success but our competitive achievements are only part of what we offer in PE and Sport. I strive to ensure that we teach a broad and balanced programme catering for every individuals needs. Pupils are encouraged to gain a passion and enjoyment for the subject in order to promote health and wellbeing.

The curriculum aims to provide pupils with the opportunities to:

                                                    

I am delighted that our efforts and successes are reflected in our Gold Sportsmark Awards for both 2018/2019 and 2019/2020. In just two years of applying we have gone straight from Silver to Gold. The challenge is to remain at Gold for 3 years in order to achieve Platinum status.


Our school has very clear guidance on uniform and this is the same with PE and sports kit. The link to the 'school kit list' gives clear guidance on what is being taught and when and how best pupils can be prepared for lessons. With the onset on Coronavirus we now have in place pupils coming to school wearing PE kit on their PE lesson day(s). 

See our school kit list. Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions, there have been slight changes to kit list. For updated changes please go to the link below:

PE kit list Sept2020 update

Overview of sports and activities covered in PE

PE lessons are taught by Ms Wildman (lead PE coordinator and PE specialist) and a sports coach who is in on a Monday and Wednesday.

Reception and Year 1 have a solid focus on multi-skills throughout the year. This is in order to have a real focus on agility, balance and coordination and to further develop fine and gross motor skills. These skills provide the basis for all sports covered so it is essential that pupils are given the right foundations from the start and these are embedded throughout KS1. 

The following table shows what year groups are taught during each term. You will find many year groups have the same sporting topics and this is to allow for a clear progression throughout the years, as well as pupils and families knowing what will be taking place and have consistency amongst siblings.

Extra-curricular sport

PLEASE NOTE THAT EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ARE VERY RESTRICTED DUE TO COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDANCE. INFORMATION AND POLICIES ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING AND WHEN POSSIBLE WE WILL RETURN A FULL EXTRA-CURRICULAR TIMETABLE.

At playtimes it is hard to find more than a handful of pupils who are not involved in something active! We work hard to give pupils plenty of opportunities to enjoy recreational play, whether on the playground during the wetter, winter months or on the field in the drier summer months. 

Pupils have the opportunities to be involved in:

  • trim trail and slide
  • football
  • basketball
  • playground equipment (skipping ropes, hula hoops, balls, roller boards and much more!!)
  • music and dancing
  • free play and their own individual games

Last academic year we offered an afterschool multi-skills club for Year 2 and it will be our aim for this to continue when COVID-19 restrictions are eased.


Sport and competition

Clubs and competitions have been severely restricted due to COVID-19 safety guidance. At the moment no afterschool or lunchtime clubs are running. 

School sports development squads and teams generally train at both lunchtimes and after school for Key Stage 2. Gym clubs run at breaktime during terms 3&4. Pupils who have been targeted within lessons get invited to join the development squads and then all school teams are entered into local and district compeitions.

Each year we have KS2 teams for football, netball, hockey, tag rugby, gym, swimming, kurling, gymnastics, athletics, rounders, cricket and tennis teams! These teams include pupils from Years 3-6 and we normally have between 2-4 teams per sport. We were undefeated local champions last year and over the last couple of years have got through to County rounds in football (boys and girls teams), swimming, hockey and girls cricket.

I organise and host all cluster sports competitions and festivals. Our cluster schools include Christ the King, Amesbury Archer, Kings Gate, Woodford Valley and Newton Tony. Every term I offer at least one sporting event for the cluster and over the year it gives opportunities for pupils from Yr1-Yr6, those who are gifted and talented, as well SEND pupils


National School Sports Week

This is a national event which runs at the end of June and is something which our school wholeheartedly immerses itself into for the week!! Pupils (and staff!) wear pe kit or sports clothes for the week and spend every day using sport as a medium to learn.

  • whole school events - Race for Life and nature walks to the local Rec ground.
