"Effective delivery of the National Curriculum Expectations will ensure that children develop into thinking physical beings and doing physical beings which impact on the behavioural change to equip them for lifelong participation." (Association for Physical Education)


What does Physical Education look like at St. Bernadette’s?


At St. Bernadette’s the aim of Physical Education is to give children the knowledge and understanding required to make a positive impact on their own physical health and well-being. It is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices. PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at St. Bernadette’s, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.




This term, some classes have been playing invasion games.  We have been applying our throwing, catching, attacking and defending skills within small-sided team games.  These have also given us the opportunity to work on our teamwork skills.

Year 5 have been working hard on their endurance skills – squatting, shadow boxing, skipping, lunges, bench presses and relay. They were exhausted at the end but enjoyed the carousel of activities.
