Sports Day 2021

Sport changes lives!

Mr Elvins
PE & Sports Leader


As a subject we have the power to change. We believe that we can support children with their physical development in a way that is fun and inclusive for all! All children in school are given the chance to take part in 2 hours of Physical Education each week. Children are also given chance to take part in additional Physical Activity in school as part of the extra Curriculum. Children are also given time during free time to partake in organised sports and games on the playground.  

We strongly believe in the 6 key values what we uphold as a subject, these are;



Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don't hold back!


Team work

Treating everyone equally, supporting each other and working together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other's success and be a positive team player.



You've got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.



Be honest with others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing and what you know is right. Let the best person win, not the best cheat!



Giving it 100 per cent. Put your heart and soul into the game and never give up. Passion makes you enter the race and passion makes you finish it.



Show respect for the referee, for the opposition, for your team mates, for yourself and for the game. Accepting victory and defeat with grace, treating others politely and with understanding. Have respect every day, in every sport and for everyone.

Kings Heath Sports Partnership 2020/21

We work with Kings Heath Boys and other school in the local area to ensure that children are given the chance to take part in competitive and non-competitive events against other school. We have built strong links with other school in the local community as well as other sports venues that we are in connection with. All children are given a well round extra curriculum programme that is well supported by KHBSP.


Our main aims in support with Kings Heath Boys are to;

Building a brighter future for young people through physical education classes, sporting competition and extra-curricular opportunities.

Creating links between sport and the classroom which inspires a generation to be successful across multiple areas.

Developing sporting and social attributes which create well rounded individuals both in and out of the school environment.

3 Stages of development - connected to intention of learning.


Reception - Year 2 This is the first stage of maturity in the primary years. Movements are still being learnt and developed and children tend to play alongside a friend rather than with one. Basic rules and behaviours are being learned and children show great enthusiasm to have a go as experience has not yet taught them fear or danger awareness. There is a limited awareness of space and others.

To move and be still under basic control so that movements are performed with accuracy and clarity

To repeat and co-ordinate simple movement combinations so that they link together

To use simple equipment with purpose and basic control

To find and use space well showing an awareness of others and basic safety

How to use simple tactics and compositional ideas with consistency

Some simple things they can do to be healthy

To recognise and copy simple actions and follow basic instructions with some


To describe what they and others are doing with some accuracy

To come up with and suggest ideas that relate to their performance


Year 3/4 - During the second stage of maturity basic movements have been learned and children start to develop these into more recognisable skills though control and fluency are still inconsistent. Children like to play with one or more friends and need to be noticed as individuals as they become more self-aware. They tend to enjoy physical activity but want more structure and rules as they begin to recognise some risks. They are also much more aware of space and others.

To move, stop and remain still with balance and clarity of movement and shape

To repeat simple combinations of skills and actions showing coordination and

changes in direction and speed

To use a range of skills that make use of equipment with basic consistency and


To be able to use their own and others’ ideas for movements, tactics and compositions

To describe how they feel after exercise

To know the importance of physical activity, diet and sleep to make them feel good and well

To come up with their own ideas for warming up and practising

To be able to identify skills, actions and parts of sequences that are good quality

To be able to describe the differences and similarities between sequences


Year 5/6 - During the third stage of maturity children have more formed and clear movement. They begin to refine them so that they become more recognisable specific skills that are performed with greater control. They like to feel part of a group or team and get their recognition from being part of something bigger. Some children tend to lose interest in physical activity as other activities start to take their time, so they are more discerning about what they do and take part in. They understand and use rules and structures and begin to be more creative about how they tackle tasks and challenges.

 To move and be still with control, composure, good body shape, tension and changes in speed and effort

To combine skills and actions with some fluency and consistency

To use a greater range of specific skills / techniques using equipment with consistent control

To create and use tactics and compositional ideas that suit the situation with some success

To respond to changes in situations and new challenges and conditions with some rationale

To know what a healthy lifestyle is and how to live their lives more healthily

To make accurate comments about the quality of their own and others’ performances and actions

To assess performance and actions against criteria and suggest improvements

To come up with some sensible suggestions about how to improve performances and actions


What we aim for children to achieve.


Skill set


This is about all intentional movement ranging from large whole-body movements such a walking, running, standing up, sitting down, etc. to fine small movements of specific parts of the body, such as handwriting, gesturing, etc. The better the coordination, the better the movements are controlled and completed with minimum effort and maximum accuracy.



Balance is both maintaining a physical equilibrium and being equally controlled in movement on both sides of the body. In addition, there are specific balances in which children are in a 'state of topple' and still manage to maintain equilibrium and stillness.



Agility is a combination of coordination and balance where children react quickly and suddenly to a stimulus that frequently takes them out of balance and standard movements. It is also about having the coordination, balance and condition to complete complex and challenging dynamic skills and actions.

Decision making


Tactics and Strategies

Tactics are the basic approaches and actions you take to outwit or overcome an opponent or succeed in a challenge. Strategies are the larger plans you make to organise yourself and others in the most effective and efficient way to bring about success in outwitting and problem-solving situations. Strategies require a range of specific tactics to be deployed for each facet of the challenge. For example, a strategy might be to concentrate more on attack than defence and a tactic might be use the widest points of the pitch / court as often as possible


Composition and Choreography

Composition focuses on the design and creation of a sequence of movements and actions that meet the criteria provided. It requires the use of a number of design principles to develop something that is aesthetically pleasing and contains specific elements required. Choreography builds further on this by considering how to create relationships with the stimulus provided and with space, people and objects around. Its intention is communicating with an audience so that they are able to develop their own interpretations and responses to the dance.


Exercising and Healthy Living

This focuses on how to exercise and, later, train for specific outcomes and general wellbeing. It is both about designing an exercising routine and a planned pattern for being physically active. The successes of an exercise / physical activity programme can be improvement in body condition, personal wellbeing and social wellbeing. As children reach late puberty, it is also about developing and maintaining physical fitness.
