Trewirgie Junior School is passionate about sport and recognises the vital role that this plays in the development of our children. Participation in PE and Dance leads to improved physical fitness and positive mental health and wellbeing. It also helps to build a child’s self-esteem and emotional resilience.
PE gives children opportunities to work together and through this build the sense of connection with others. These opportunities to compete in sport and other activities also help to build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.
Throughout the year children will be taught a range of PE skills for:
Outdoor adventurous activities
Swimming (Year 5).
Each strand of PE has a clear progression of skills that is build upon year on year. We also use Lifewise, a PSHE curriculum which enables the children to develop aspects of personal development through PE.
