Here at Dines Green we ensure we provide an extensive range of opportunities in a range of key sports. We ensure we provide the opportunity for all children to follow the National Curriculum programme of study for PE. Our curriculum aims at engaging all of our children by offering a vast selection of sports and outside opportunities.
At KS1 children take part in a range of gymnastics, dance and games modules. By delivering the curriculum in a fun and engaging manner, we aim to instill children with lifelong skills and motivation to participate regularly in sport, both in and out of school.
In KS2 we continue to offer gymnastics, games and dance, however swimming, OAA and athletics are added to the curriculum.
We are lucky that our PE Co-Ordinator (Miss Hicks) is a qualified PE specialist. This ensures she can advise class teachers of new teaching approaches and ideas in this subject, meaning fun, exciting and engaging PE lessons across the school. All children in KS1 and KS2 will have at least two hours of high quality PE a week, where children will have the opportunity to develop a range of physical and social skills appropriate to their age groups.
As part of our drive forward to give our children the best quality PE lessons possible, children and teachers across the school will be working with Dance in Motion. Miss Jazz, alongside each class teacher, is working hard to ensure dance teaching knowledge is developed in order to allow the best possible learning experiences for children across the school.
We also recognise that some great sporting opportunities are not able to take place during school. Residential trips to places such as Wye Valley allow our children to access new and exciting areas of the curriculum. For example:
Afterschool & lunchtime clubs
Here at Dines Green we run an extensive extra-curricular programme to allow children in both KS1 and KS2 the opportunity to attend a club of their choice.
Some clubs currently in place to increase children’s health and fitness as well as social skills are:
