Physical Education (PE)
PE is taught to give children enjoyment and the opportunity to participate in a wide range of physical activities including; dance, gymnastics, adventure education, invasion games and swimming (Year 5 and 6 Only). Our curriculum is designed to encourage a high level of skill, co-operation and teamwork, which leads to lifelong participation. All children will have the opportunity to work with PE specialist teachers during every school year during their time at Elmore Green and their lessons are often taught or supported by a specialist sports leader.
Each week your child will have two P.E. lessons. Some lessons will be taught in our gym, some outside and on occasions they will be taught at an alternative provision (this is the case for swimming) When working in the gym and in particular during dance and gymnastics lessons, your child will be required to be barefoot. For all other PE activities indoor your child will need to wear pumps. They will not be allowed to wear their trainers for indoor P.E. Your child can wear either pumps or trainers. From January in their Year 5 year to December in their Year 6 children year, your child will participate in a weekly swimming lesson at Bloxwich Active Living Centre.
