Physical Education (PE)
At West Twyford, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and wellbeing.
Our teachers use the ‘REAL PE’ programme which provides fun and simple to follow lessons that follow the Primary PE Schemes of Work. This is taught in the Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We focus on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique and skills based approach to teaching and learning in PE.
For our outdoor games, we have a professional coach leading the lessons. Children enjoy games such as hockey, football, basketball as well as learning the fundamental skills and how to apply them.
Last year we were awarded the ‘Gold School Games Award’ that highlighted our active participation in sporting activities in and out of school.
Children actively take part in the ‘Daily Mile’ and as a result are improving their fineness and overall health. We even have the teachers joining in too!
We have many events that are aimed at encouraging children of all ages and abilities, such as Sports Day, our Health Fayre, and a variety of sporting competitions that demonstrate the children’s strengths and skills.
