PE in our school
Sport has always been important in our school and PE plays an important part in this along with all the other sporting opportunities the pupils have. We have 2 PE sessions every week and are very lucky to have great indoor and outdoor spaces so that PE can take place no matter what the weather! The information above shows the topics we cover in the 2 PE sessions. We have great PE teachers and resources. Please support us by making sure your child has the correct PE kit in school each week so they can take part fully in the lesson.
We will post regular updates from our PE sessions below. You can also find out about the other sporting activities that take place by visiting this page.
At Ilfracombe Junior School, we will learn how we can have healthy lives with an active lifestyle. During P.E, we will aim to get out of breath and increase our heart rate. We will improve our Fundamental movement skills which are a specific set of skills that involve different body parts. The twelve key fundamental movement skills are: balancing, running, jumping, catching, hopping, throwing, galloping, skipping, leaping and kicking. We will achieve this through a range of games activities, gymnastic activities, swimming activities and athletic activities. Children will develop a healthy sense of competition as we attend a wide variety of sporting events.
