Welcome to the PE page

Welcome to the Rosary PE page. here you can find information about events, competitions and how we teach P.E.. 

What's been going on?

After the Lockdown hindered the ability to take part in the competitions throughout the spring term, some children from Year 5 and 6 were able to take part in the hockey skill games challenge run by Atlas sports. In the 4 weeks that children had before Easter, children attended after school clubs to improve their skills before a member of the Atlas Sport team came in and delivered the fantastic event alongside Mr Greed. All children showed great dexterity and skill to control the ball and gain the Rosary some fantastic scores to try and beat all other schools taking part in the mini-game competition. Photos from this event can be seen below. 


At the start of the year we had a Cross Country event for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The children posted some amazing times and showed fantastic resilience to complete the 1k (KS1) and 1 mile (KS2) runs. Photos from the event can be seen below. 



PE Curriculum

Here at the Rosary, we aim to get all children active through a variety of sports and activities. They will develop skills such as teamwork, patience, leadership, self-discipline and many more. These important qualities, which can be used in all aspects of life, are taught and delivered in a creative and engaging PE curriculum, exposing children to new and exciting sporting challenges. 

The wide range of activities we deliver aim to give children a broader sporting experience and inspire them to take on personal challenges. Whether it be finding the sport they feel comfortable playing, deepening their understanding of basic skills, or immersing themselves in an active lifestyle, PE at the Rosary School aims to give all children the chance to love and appreciate the effect sport can have on our lives.

Early Year Foundation Stage PE

Right from their beginning of their time in school, children will be running, jumping and skipping around without any prompt whatsoever. PE at the early stages will involve harnessing those common movements, and developing those with new movements and fine and gross motor skills to start them on their journey to being life long athlete.  


These younger years are where they will first have the opportunity to develop these key personal values in the context of fun and meaningful sport. 


PE in Key Stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations

PE in Key Stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
