PE long term overview Oct 23



Our Physical Education curriculum has been designed to be broad and balanced, providing the pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen their knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn about PE. At St. Clare’s we believe PE is vital to pupils’ physical, mental and emotional development and health. We provide children with inclusive, engaging and challenging PE lessons, where each child can reach their full potential. We aim to foster enthusiasm and enjoyment of PE and Sports across the whole school from Early Years to Year 6.  We want to teach children how to co-operate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equality of play to embed life long values. We wish to leave our children actively wanting to take part in Sport, PE and have a good attitude to Health and Well-Being.

Dream Big Sports

We are really excited to be working alongside Dream Big Sports this year.  We will have coaches in school on a Tuesday and Wednesday working with the children and staff on curriculum PE as well as offering some after school clubs.  Watch this space for updates and photos! 

Year 3 are certainly enjoying using our new gymnastic equipment in their lessons with our Dream Big Coach. They are learning how to use the equipment safely whilst incorporating jumping in different ways.

Some of our children in Years 4 and 5 have been learning about points and patches in relation to gymnastics.

Year 3 enjoyed their gymnastics lesson with our Dream Big coach where they were making different body shapes linked to their favourite sports and even letters of the alphabet.

Athletics Competition

A group of pupils from our Year 5 and 6 classes took part in a Manchester PE Association indoor athletics event competing against nine other local schools. They had to show their speed and agility in speed bounce, javelin, chest push, standing long jump as well as running. Our pupils were all determined and focused. They represented our school with pride and displayed great sportsmanship throughout the event. We have some amazing runners who led us to victory in many of the races. Their God given talents were certainly on show! We were very proud of them all.


Keeping active and healthy at home


Here are some suggestions of ways you and your family can keep active and healthy at home.

  • Daily mile – go for a walk around your local area (remembering social distancing) or set up a daily mile track in your back garden/yard.
