In 2021 we won the Participation Award from the Suffolk Schools Partnership for participation. This is an amazing achievement despite COVID-19 restrictions
The curriculum at Rattlesden Primary Academy for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
· develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities · are physically active for sustained periods of time · engage in competitive sports and activities · lead healthy, active lives
By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes as follows under each Key Stage heading.
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. Pupils should be taught to: · master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities · participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending · perform dances using simple movement patterns
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. Pupils should be taught to: · use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination · play competitive games and modified versions of these where appropriate (for example, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis), and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending · develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance (for example, through athletics and gymnastics activities) · perform dances using a range of movement patterns · take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team · compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
Our sporting calendar 2021/2022!
On Wednesday 22nd September 2021, Year 5 and 6 took part in a Mid-Suffolk school cross country competition. We secured 3rd place in both the boys and girls race and won the team competition. Well done to everyone who took part- 2km is a long way to run and takes great determination and strength. A went through to the next round and ran at Royal Hospital School (see picture below).
Years 1-4 had a chance to take part in a virtual cross country event. Years 1 and 2 ran 800m and Years 3 and 4, 1200m. Ours winners for KS1 were J and E and C and M took the winning positions for Year 3 and 4. We are waiting to hear how we got against the other schools!!
