PE

 

At West Oxford we believe that the teaching of physical skills is a crucial element in the development of the whole child. In taking part in PE lessons, children develop physical skills which they can apply to a wide range of sports. They will learn about the competitive challenges that individuals and teams can have to face up to. It also promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.

 

 

PE in the 2021-22 School Year

We have teamed up with WR Sports Ltd once again this year to help deliver PE once a week to all of Key Stage 2 and twice a week with Year 4, as well as delivering 2 afterschool clubs. In term 2 we have a multi-skills club for years 2 and 3 as well as a football club for years 4, 5 and 6. The PE sessions act as part of the PPA cover provision for the Key Stage 2 classes.

Since March 2020, what we deliver for PE at school has been a challenge that has been changing as we go. However, we have done our best to find ways to have fun and enjoy physical exercise and sport in a socially distanced way when needed and within our classes in order to be safe and still take part in both virtual county and national sports challenges. So far in the 2021-22 school year through Vale School Games, we have not been able to take part in the usual county or Vale offerings. However, we are hopeful this will change in the Spring and moving into the summer season when more can be done outdoors.

In an effort to get some competitions on the calendar, orienteering and archery competitions will be taking place this spring with details coming very soon.

 

Sports Ambassadors at West Oxford

Our fabulous Year 6 Oak Class have now all had the first part of their Sports Ambassador Training: Play Leader Training! 

This is a great leadership opportunity for Year 6 as well as a great chance for the rest of the school to learn from the Great Oaks. Starting in February, there will be Year 6 children leading fun, non-competitive games on the playground at lunch time for the younger children. This will be an additional offering at playtimes and is optional for the other children to join in with. It will be another way to experience sport and get more physically active.  Year 6 will be finishing their training later on in the term.
