Telford Junior School PE Padlet
On our Padlet we have lots of fun activities to keep you active.
There is also a virtual competition for all year groups to have a go at.
Our School Aims
Our aim is to make sure we are delivering a high-quality physical education curriculum, that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel, not only in competitive sport, but also other physical activities throughout the school day. We are not only active in our games, P.E. and swimming lessons, but also aim to make other curriculum lessons active. The children also complete the Daily Mile, promoting an active lifestyle, as well as preparing the children's minds for the next lesson.
Physical education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school
curriculum timetabled time and which is delivered to all pupils. This involves both ‘learning
to move’ (i.e. becoming more physically competent) and ‘moving to learn’ (e.g. learning
through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity, such as
co-operating with others).The context for the learning is physical activity, with children and
young people experiencing a broad range of activities, including sport and dance.
School sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. in the
extended curriculum) within school settings; this is sometimes referred to as out-of-school hours
learning. Again, the context for the learning is physical activity. The ‘school sport’
programme has the potential to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes
place in physical education. It also forms a vital link with ‘community sport and activity’.
Physical activity is a broad term referring to all bodily movement that uses energy. It
includes all forms of physical education, sports and dance activities. However, it is wider
than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor and
adventurous activities, active travel (e.g. walking, cycling, rollerblading, scooting) and
routine, habitual activities such as using the stairs, doing housework and gardening.

How we support children to be competitive.
We offer opportunities to compete at a variety of levels from intra-school competitions, which are held throughout the year. This leads onto some children also taking part in inter-school competitions. These children are selected from our intra-level competitions, as much as possible. We also have pupils who achieve selection through to County Final competitions, which is an excellent achievement. Currently, we have 4 teams who have made it through to this level of competition in Rowing, Sportshall Athletics, Cross Country and Dodgeball, another fantastic achievement. Not only that, one member of our cross country team has just achieved a place to compete at the National Final. We are so proud of them. However, most of all, we are immensely proud of the attitude, teamwork, dedication and the way they support both one another and athletes from other teams.
Healthy, Active Lives.
We value the importance of providing opportunities to develop healthy, active pupils. We help them develop to be physically confident and make sure we are supporting our pupils' health and fitness.
Personal Challenge Booklet
We are lucky to work with the team at Coventry and Warwickshire School Sport Partnership. They have produced this personal challenge booklet, which you can use at home, if you wish. I believe they are going to be sending us more over the following weeks, so please keep checking back. Please see below.
A new resource for all ages will be available linked to the alphabet of School Games. This is being created by Hollie (North Solihull SGO) in line with the national initiative #StayInWorkOut #StayHomeGetActive. A daily challenge will be posted on social media..
We will add the challenges here:
In case you haven't heard...…(but you probably have), the Body Coach is doing a daily 'PE lesson' at 9 am of his You Tube channel. It looks good. If you've had a go already, we hope you are enjoying it.
Dance Dance Dance!
Another fabulous way to keep active is dancing. Liz England (Fit to Dance) has kindly created a dance for you to learn. A great way to get moving. Thank you Liz for creating this.
Whilst we are keeping active, we can also develop our skills and fitness. Here are two pack for you, the first to help throwing and catching skills and secondly for developing fitness with a hoop. Please see below for some ideas.
At Telford Junior School, we take our sporting attitude very seriously and this is encouraged in all our pupils. Whether this is during games lessons, intra school tournaments or even when we are competing against other schools, we feel these principles are very important.
