PE - Year 7


“Never say never because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.” – Michael Jordan

Overview

In the Physical Education Department we provide a range of opportunities for pupils to be active and enjoy physical activity. We aim to make physical activity a central part of pupils lives and set them up for a healthy life in the future.

From studying a variety of sports to focusing on the body and lifestyles, students will discover there is more to sport than just the game.

Homework

Whilst there is no formal homework in PE, each student is asked to immerse themselves into the world of sport. 

  • Actively encouraged to watch live sport or use Youtube to watch highlights of activities being covered. 
  • To develop a greater understanding of the game and why we need to practise the skills in order to apply them in a competitive situation. 
  • Students are also encouraged to become more physically active outside of school time.

Assessment

Formative throughout the year via questioning, self, peer, teacher feedback in class. Observation and analysis forms a greater part of our lessons.

Summative assessment takes place twice a year and formulates the end of year final grade.


Opportunities

Activities and Clubs

We offer a range of clubs and activities for both students who want to compete against other schools or partake in clubs just for fun. Activities run at lunchtime and after school. Extra curricular timetables are distributed into form rooms and on notice boards or just ask a member of the department.
