PE and Sport at Bryn St. Peter's
Our physical education curriculum will inspire ALL pupils to succeed and achieve in ALL aspects of physical activity. It aims to provide children with appropriate levels of challenge – at appropriate times - that develop, strengthen and prioritise an individual’s physical, social and emotional health. P.E at St. Peter’s intends to provide children with a safe environment that offers different opportunities to become physically confident, in a way that encourages and supports a healthy lifestyle (both in and out of school). The long terms plans for each year group (from YR to Y6) have been designed to run alongside themes being used in the classroom over each half term, providing valuable cross-curricular links and offering all children the opportunity to extend and broaden their learning. Regular opportunities to be a part of both competitive and non-competitive activity aims to develop character and further embed the principles of fairness and respect which will enhance the core Christian and British values that are already rooted within our school. As the children progress through the Key Stages, they will experience different roles and responsibilities (such as leadership and officiating) and ALL children will learn how to contribute effectively to challenging individual and team situations.
During the Summer Term 2021, children across school will be given the opportunity to create their own 'Personal Best' challenges. These will consist of an exercise, completed for a set amount of time, with a minimum amount of repetitions to be achieved (see the sheet attached). Each child in every class - regardless of ability - will create a challenge sheet which, along with everybody else's sheet from that class, will be kept by the class teacher. Then, each morning, break, lunch, before or after school, the class teachers will choose 2 or 3 of the challenges for the children to have a go at, ensuring that everybody gives their best effort.
This will help our school to strive towards offering an additional 30 minutes of physical exercise for every pupil, each day.
Let's Get Moving Bingo
The Let's Get Moving bingo cards inspire the children to work towards achieving ‘columns = Bronze’, ‘rows = Silver’ and a ‘full house = Gold’ on an activity grid (see sheet attached) – each box on the grid contains an exercise for the children to complete. The aim is for the children to gain their Gold status each week.

Anomaly will deliver messages to children and families as they pass through our playground, whilst it can also operate as a screen on which our teachers (along with break and lunch time staff) can use to run activities for the children to engage with such as Active mathematics, Dance, Yoga, Science and much more.
