At St Catherine’s, the children have two hours of PE a week. In addition to this, they take part in 15 minutes of Daily Mile running or walking most days each week, as well as active playtimes and lunchtimes.
PE lessons use the Real PE and Real Gym schemes, which are based on core fundamental movement skills.
The children practise and develop these skills and apply them to a range of different activities. They are encouraged to create their own games, take ownership of their learning and coach each other. During PE lessons, children compete against themselves and each other and work on understanding how to improve their performance.
Children should bring PE kits to wear for lessons. They should have a PE t-shirt, shorts, plimsols or trainers and a tracksuit for the winter as some PE lessons will be outside. Long hair should be tied back and earrings should be taped.
