PE to us is…

PE at Hillside aims to encourage interest in and ability to complete different sporting activities whilst fostering a positive, lifelong relationship with exercise.  We want to give children an understanding of how to play different sports and the importance of exercise in keeping ourselves healthy.

This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered as a discrete subject separate to our enquiry.  Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of a sports person through explicit teaching of techniques and opportunities to apply them over time.

A year 6 sports person will be able to:

  • Create and perform gymnastic sequences, including balances, jumps and controlled movements.
  • Apply skills such as throwing and catching in team games and vary their tactics in response to what is happening in the game.
  • Compose and develop dance sequences to music.
  • Swim at least 25m using 3 different strokes.

Partnership Motto

Growing a culture of being the best version of ourselves Look back with pride and forward with confidence
