Promoting Activeness to develop Happiness
P.E at St Urban’s, has at its core, the intention of encouraging a desire in every child to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. We want them to know and understand that their health and well-being can be enormously enhanced as a direct result of their levels of activity, and through participation in competitive and non-competitive sports and activities. We want all of our children to be as active as possible.
By implementing the key fundamental skills of physical activity in every lesson, through a range of solo and team activities/sports, children will develop their understanding of physical education. The curriculum will offer them a wide range of traditional sports as well as opportunities to engage with sporting pursuits they are less likely to engage within everyday life.
We want our provision for Physical Education to have a positive impact upon both the physical and mental well-being of all of our children, allowing them to flourish into confident and happy individuals.
The ideas outlined above are brought together, in the ethos of our physical education here at St Urban’s, through the message that we are:
Promoting Activeness to develop Happiness.
As was proven last year in the height of the worldwide pandemic, staying active is brilliant for both the body and mind. This is something we will be emphasising at every opportunity across school this year at St Urban's.
The P.E challenges homework scheme will be up and running again and competition will hopefully be fierce amongst the classes. This is a great opportunity to get the whole family involved in some physical activity.
Also the Leeds Rhinos Foundation will be contributing their expert sports coaches for P.E sessions in school. In addition, we look forward to working with Active Schools and Leeds Skipping School again this year.
Just like in the real sporting world, 2021 - 22 will see a full return to our extra-curricular activities across the different year groups in school. We will be offering a wide variety of opportunities to try something new or develop skills further as well as looking forwards to the Beijing Winter Olympic Games.
Please ensure you have made yourself aware of when your child will be required to attend school in their P.E kit. (This will change on a half-termly basis)
