SJJ PE and School Sport

The main focus of P.E. at St James' Junior School is to give children the tools required to become physically competent which enables them to use basic Fundamental movements in a variety of movement situations. We aim to develop children's enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination. During PE lessons, children are taught how to move their bodies safely, carry equipment sensibly and work co-operatively with others. The children are taught how to keep their bodies healthy by discussing the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

Our children in Key stage two will have the opportunity to develop and refine the basic techniques in attacking and defending activities whilst further improving their flexibility, strength, control and balance through the development of their movement toolbox. They will also attend regular swimming sessions in Year 4 allowing them to gain proficiency certificates as their confidence in swimming is developed.
As well as providing children with two hours of quality PE lessons a week, we aim to provide children with the opportunities to take part in physical activity on a daily basis by having active lunchtimes and children going to the local park for additional sporting activities. Mr Moon (PE Teacher), our school UQTA's and Adam Metcalf Sports Coaching staff provide lunchtime and after school activities for children to participate in. Children also have the opportunity to join clubs, take part in regular intra-school competition and are chosen to represent the school for various sports teams, e.g. rugby, football, athletics, cricket, hockey and many more.
