Physical Education and Sports
at Woodside Academy
SCHEME OF WORK
Physical education develops pupils physical competence and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes physical skilfulness , physical development and knowledge of the body in action. Physical education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative , competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.
Pupils learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of creative, competitive and challenging activities. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, to improve their quality and effectiveness. Through this process pupils discover their abilities and preferences and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.
Long Term Plans
At Woodside Academy we pride ourselves on the commitment that we give to Physical Education & Sports. Our dedicated sports coaches and staff ensure that we excel in both our curriculum, competitions and events that we provide for our schools and other schools in the surrounding area. With PE & Sports being seen as a crucial part of the curriculum it allows our children to gain the knowledge, understanding and the tools that are needed to make informed choices about healthy living and how physical education can have a positive impact on their health and well-being.
This year we had both boys and girls from Year 6 who took part in the South Bradford Cross Country at Tong. They trained very hard for this event and it paid off as we came 2nd overall out of 15 schools. A fantastic achievement from the children and now we move on to the Bradford District finals in January.
Just recently we took part in an Indoor Athletics competition at Tong High School for years 5 and 6. It was the first time many of these children have taken part in this competition. We came in 2nd place which means we have qualified for the Bradford finals in March.
Our Year 3 and Year 4 children took part in their first Hockey Festival at Buttershaw High School.
We are vey proud of all of the children, they showed so much confidence and displayed good teamwork throughout the festival.
