PE curriculum overview
At Old Hall we believe that the children progress through learning the fundamentals of physical educations. Therefore, our curriculum is focused on developing skills from EYFS to when they leave in Year 6. A lot of the lessons we teach, are linked in with other areas and don't simply just focus on one element. Body management for example is taught through gymnastics, dance and games.
At Old Hall we have been taking part in the Daily Mile for 6 years and have found it a great way of ensuring the children get 15 active minutes every school day. This physical activity also promotes social, emotional and mental well-being. Four years ago, we used part of our sports premium to have a daily mile track built onto one of our fields so that the children had a laid track and were able to calculate their own laps.
WOW - Walk to School
This year we are also joining in with living streets Walk to school programme. The aim is to get more children to walk, scoot or cycle to school. We understand that not all of our children are able to walk due to the distance, but they even have an option of park and stride. If the children walk to school once a week, every week for a month, then they will earn themselves a themed badge. It's a new themed badge every month and there are 11 to collect.
