Throughout the year at Gerrans we are constantly focusing on A.B.C skills (agility, balance, co-ordination), understanding that we can use them in all areas of sport. We know why it is important to warm up before any physical activity and can choose a warm up relevant to the lesson. Peer and self assessment allow us to improve our skills and gives us the opportunity to praise one another for what went well.
In our 'sport' P.E lessons we focus on different areas of Physical Education and learn 'teaching points' (T.Ps) which help us to improve our skills. At the end these units we compete in class matches where we are assessed on the T.Ps, teamwork, sportsmanship and our knowledge of the sporting rules.
At Gerrans we are lucky to have a specialist P.E teacher come to us weekly.
We have also bought into both the Real P.E and Real Gym curriculums. These focus on the important A.B.C skills which provide a foundation for every sport that we participate in.
During the year we take part in other sporting activities such as; Year 3/4 Swimming, Year 6 Squash, Year 5/6 Bikeability, Year 5/6 Sailing and Paddleboarding.
All of this prepares us for the next step in our sporting education when we move on to secondary school.
