 Year 1 and 2 Long Term Plan

Specialised Coaching Sessions 

Sport Taster Sessions


Year 2 Swimming Lessons


Key Stage 1 children participate in at least 2 hours of PE provision per week. All staff have been trained to deliver a multi skill approach to PE which provides children with the opportunity to develop basic fundamental skills of agility, balance and coordination which are essential to so many sports.

When possible outside specialized coaches are invited into school to help develop specific skills and encourage out of school participation. Additionally, we are sometimes able to offer the children ‘taster’ sessions in different sports.

The beginning of competition is encouraged with participation in school’s Sport’s Day and sometimes tournaments with other schools.

A wide range of resources to encourage physical activity is provided at lunchtime, including our new activity wall.

In Year 2 swimming forms part of the PE curriculum.
