Physical Education


At Trinity Road we aim to provide children with an inspiring PE curriculum that offers them opportunities to learn the skills of a range of sports and the chances to use these skills in competitive situations, whilst also developing the concept of Respect, Achieve, Belong.


PE lessons happen twice each week, with the skills for two different sports being taught; these sports are changed each half term; teachers team teach with our Sports Coach for one of the PE sessions to develop their own skills in a particular sport. During PE lessons children not only learn the skills for that sport but also the importance of working together as a team and the need to respect each other in order to achieve.

During the course of the year and across the school children are taught the skills needed for dance, a variety of ball games such as rugby, football, basketball and tennis, gymnastics, cricket, athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities. Children also have swimming lessons during Year 4.

PE lesson are planned using the progression of skills document to ensure that each year group is building on and developing the skills that have been taught in the previous year.

Competitions, where children are in their school teams, take place during lessons to consolidate the skills that children have learnt with an inter-class competition taking place at the end of each unit of work. Children are expected to evaluate their performances during the weekly competitions so that they understand what is needed to develop and improve their skills in future lesson and consequently their achievement.

As well as learning the skills needed for each sport the children also develop their understanding of the importance of exercise in order to keep fit and healthy and therefore are encouraged to lead active lives.
