My name is Mr Yate and I am the subject leader for Physical Education at Wargrave C of E Primary School.
I am passionate about PE as I feel that all aspects of physical education should involve cognitive challenge as well as providing opportunities for personal development. I feel it is paramount that children develop the understanding, that many factors must interact in order to keep us healthy and that these are all important! It is my vision that PE should be taught in a way to encourage children to think about their fundamental movement knowledge by mastering the foundations of stability, object control and locomotion. By embedding these concepts into their long term memory they will then be able to think about the key components of physical education as well as how to develop their sport-specific knowledge.
Therefore, we have carefully planned our PE curriculum at Wargrave CofE Primary School and offers each and every learner the skills they need to establish a healthy lifestyle, which incorporates physical fitness and competitive sport. We have taken the key content from the National Curriculum and considered how this may best be used to ensure an understanding of health and fitness. We strive to ensure that our PE curriculum allows our pupils to reach their full potential and develop lifelong skills.
