Physical Education

At Thorpe Primary School our overall vision for PE is to develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through: thinking, engagement, actions and motivation.

P.E at Thorpe provides children with the opportunity to learn a variety of skills and to take part in a variety of activities, games and sports.

  • Through our teaching in PE we want to enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination and to develop children’s levels of physical activities and fundamental skills.
  • To learn that that being active is enjoyable and that it is important to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
  • We want children to learn how to co-operate with each other and how to work successfully as part of a group.
  • We want them to learn rules and establish boundaries.
  • We strive to create opportunities for children to challenge themselves in a practical setting and to develop confidence and improve their levels of self –esteem.
