Where possible we try to link
parts of the PE curriculum to the thematic approach in Primary. Throughout the year,
we will look at the various themes and incorporate key concepts, which can aid
in their learning. For example; in Term 1, the Year 1 topic theme is ‘Me, Myself
and I’. In PE we will look at self-awareness and understanding of body parts
used in different activities. In Year 2 the topic will begin with the theme
‘Under the Sea’. In PE, we will try to incorporate sea creatures and their
movements into Gym and Dance based activities.
