“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of silver or gold.”

Mahatma Ghandi

“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.”

John F Kennedy

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 can:

  • Describe how they might create a gymnastic sequence and what it might include.
  • Describe ways to throw and catch and explain some rules to at least one sport.
  • Describe how they 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
