Twickenham School has two new members. We have been joined by two guinea pigs. They are 9-week-old sisters and are living in the science department. They are being made a big fuss of by students and will be very well looked after. https://t.co/Q5Laj0goLE

Physical Education

Intent:

The Twickenham School Physical Education Department will follow the whole school policy for curriculum provision. In addition to this, the PE curriculum will:

  • Build on prior learning in key stages 1 and 2 and expand on the basic physical skill base that has been set.
  • build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2,
  • develop students into being more competent, confident, and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities.
  • Teach students to understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work.
  • develop student’s confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life,
  • allow students to understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
  • encourage all students to consider further study of sport and entry to sport careers post-16 and beyond

Key Stage 3

A broad range of sports will be offered to all students to ensure they develop a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games such as badminton, basketball, cricket, football, netball, rounders, rugby, and tennis. The PE curriculum will also develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports like athletics and gymnastics. Students will learn through practical lessons the skill of analysing their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Students will take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.

KS3 lessons are taught in ability groups to ensure all students are challenged and gain a sense of confidence and success within their lessons and develop positive attitudes towards physical activity.

Year 7

Teaching will include the core fundamental skills and tactical knowledge needed within each sport, while introducing rules and small sided/conditioned competitive game play.

Year 8

Teaching will build upon prior learning to develop more complex skills, with a focus of implementation into competitive game situations and working as a team. Student leadership and coaching is introduced with small roles and responsibilities through each activity topic like leading warm-ups, small group activities.

Year 9

Focus of year 9 is on game play and leadership. Students will undertake, where possible, full sided/ruled games and learn about how to play competitively, developing tactical advantages and strategic game play. They will also be given the responsibility to coach and lead peers in this situation.

Student leadership opportunities are widely available through links with the Richmond School Sports Partnership, regular KS1&2 events provide a platform for our students to assist in running the events as leaders and coaches.

Key Stage 4

Core PE

KS4 lessons are divided into three groups, GCSE PE students, Core competitive games group and Core recreational group, creating a personalised programme to suit the students’ needs and interests to continue to develop success and a positive attitude towards physical activity and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as well as the GCSE students to develop their specialised practical skills in preparation for their final exams.

Core PE classes follow more recreational and student lead activities that will add in friendly competition and enjoyment of sport. Outside agencies and coaches will be used to deliver some specialist sessions throughout this key stage (e.g. yoga).

GCSE PE classes will follow a programme of activities that students will be taught and graded on for their GCSE grade. These sports encompass a variety of individual and team sports as well as winter and summer activities to cover the need and specialisms of the pupils.

These activities will be governed by season and facility availability.

Teachers will swap groups during the year to ensure GCSE PE students have subject specialist teachers for each sport.
