Oliver's Battery Primary School

Creative, Caring, Confident Learners for Life

"Outstanding for Early Years and Good overall" - Ofsted, March 2016


Welcome to the P.E. page!

P.E. Lessons

At Oliver's Battery School the children are taught two P.E. lessons each week. One of these is Games related and the other an indoor session, which might be Dance, Gymnastics or HRF (Health Related Fitness).

The children are taught by their class teacher and a P.E. specialist teacher each week. This year we have a teacher from Kingsā€œ School coming in to show us different ways of delivering a P.E. lesson and to share their ideas with the class teachers.

Throughout the year children in Key Stage 1 follow a programme which begins with basic ball skills, then continues with invasion games, throwing and catching, and striking and fielding. All children will take part in small-sided games which will eventually lead to participation in competition, as they get older. In Key Stage 2, children concentrate on the more formal skills required to play sports such as Hockey, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Cricket and Rounders.

All children have topic-based Dance sessions, each half-term, where they are encouraged to perform in groups to their peers. We also encourage performance in Gymnastics lessons. This year the children will soon be able to enjoy some new climbing equipment, which will include 3 new climbing walls. This will enhance the learning, by giving the children the opportunity to perform balances, jumps and rolls along, up and over equipment.

Our aim is to always offer the children a variety of physical activities, both individual and in small groups.

House Challenge

Each half-term the children in Key Stage 2 take part in a weekly House Challenge, in which the winning house gain an extra 20 house points every Friday.
