PE at Wistaston Church Lane Academy
The lessons taught in P.E are transferable to many areas of life- resilience, determination, focus, confidence, to name a few, can help children grow as a person. By covering such a wide variety of sports, we can also hopefully find a physical activity that all children enjoy or want to continue into adulthood. The physical skills taught in lessons are used in many sports, giving children the confidence to try different activities outside of school.
Lessons are designed to enable all children to experience a level of challenge regardless of their current knowledge and ability. The sports covered in the curriculum meet the skills expected to be covered by the governmental guidelines, not just through the traditional sports (which are covered) but also new and current sports.
This year has seen us trying lots of new sports! From Boccia to American football, all classes are enjoying the opportunity to get stuck into a variety of new sports- sports, that so far, they may have only seen on TV. We also have different specialist coaches coming in to teach sports to different classes throughout the year.
