We love PE at The Ferns and have lots of fun in our lessons!
We have lots of opportunities to try many different sports and learn to master new skills.
A variety of after school sports clubs perfectly compliment our already exciting PE curriculum.
Here at The Ferns we regularly timetable PE lessons covering a broad range of sports. Children are given the opportunity to try many different sports and learn to master new skills. PE is taught by specailst coaches over the course of the year. A variety of after school sports clubs perfectly compliment our already exciting PE curriculum.


We believe that P.E. should adopt and develop positive attitudes towards sharing, co-operation and competition in active situations. It wishes to enhance pupils? self-confidence and self-esteem through a wide range of movement experience.
Pupils learn how to think in different ways to suit diverse types of creative, competitive, cooperative and challenging activities. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their aptitudes and abilities, and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.
We consider good sportsmanship to be at heart of school sport.

PE in Early years and Key Stage One
In KS1 and early years we take a multi-skills based approach to PE, in which children learn a multitude of skills through fun games and exercises. This aims to provide them with a solid base from which they can further develop their talents in specific sports as they move forward.

The key areas of study are:
Balance, Travelling, Agility, Ball Skills, Music (dance) and Teamwork.

PE in Key Stage Two

In KS2 we take the skills learnt by the children in school so far and put them into a sports context.
We allow the children to try a huge variety of different traditional sports as well as some less well known sports!
Years 3 and 4 are also learning to swim for the full academic year to allow them to develop an essential life skill.

The key areas of study are:
Gymnastics, Dance, Invasion games, Net and Wall games, Striking and Fielding games, Athletics, Swimming and Outdoor/Adventurous Activities.
