Key Stage 2 Physical Education

Physical Education and Sport is a fundamental part of a pupil’s life at Mesaieed International School.  We offer a broad range of activities during Curriculum time and extend these in our after school sporting activities programme. At Mesaieed International School we compete in the Qatar Private Primary Schools Sports Association (QPPSSA), we offer squad development sessions in addition to clubs to enable our competitive teams to succeed at the QPPSSA events. Pupils participate in at two PE lesson each week.

The Curriculum

At MIS we follow the National Curriculum for England and Wales. The PE curriculum is designed to be fully inclusive and offers a broad range of activities for all pupils to experience. The main purpose is to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. In addition to this we offer opportunities to compete in sport and other activities which aim to build character and help to embed values such as fairness, integrity and respect.

Aims

The national curriculum 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.

Subject content

Pupils are encouraged to 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 are given the opportunity to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They will develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils are taught to:

·         use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination

·         play competitive games, modified where appropriate, such as badminton, 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

·         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.
