The National School Sport Week at home begins on Monday 22nd June 2020. Youth Sport Trust have published PE activity ideas for children to access at home. See below for some activities you might like to try:
We have a sports organising 'crew' (playmakers) at Acacias, made up of pupils from Y5 & Y6. They work alongside teachers and children to help develop, organise and promote school sport
Details of how we teach the PE curriculum and progression across the year groups can be found by clicking here.
PE & Sport Funding
All maintained schools have benefited from additional funding in the form of the PE & Sports Grant. For information on how we have used the PE and sport funding and its impact, please click here.
From 2015-2017 we focused on developing teachers' skills in teaching games with a focus on football, basketball, hockey, tennis, cricket & athletics. This was a two year programme of development and resulted in all PE lessons observed in summer 2017 being at least good. We now have a progressive curriculum covering Reception to Y6 which includes extension activities for children who are gifted and talented. In 2017-19 we focussed on developing our teaching of gymnastics. For 2019-21 we are looking to develop the teaching of dance.
In Year 4, all of our pupils participate in swimming lessons run at the local pool.
Some key questions linked to swimming required by the DfE are
1. What percentage of your year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 82.25% of our children could swim 25m at the end of Y4, this has not been reassessed since that date.
