“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of silver or gold.”
“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”

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.
