Virtual Games Football Champions! Key Stage 2

The Youth Sport Trust are running a virtual After School Sport Club will be led by Athlete Mentors from different backgrounds, abilities and sports. The first session will take place on Thursday 12 November at 5pm, with the world’s number one female inline skater and ten times British Champion, Jenna Downing.


Every day at 5pm from 16 November until 18 December, children and young people can join in with the live broadcast for free on our YouTube channel. Join in the conversation on social using #YSTAfterSchool and tagging @YouthSportTrust across all social media channels. You might need items from around your home for some sessions, but we’ll give some ideas ahead of each club to adapt if you don’t have these items.

The different daily themes are below:


Adventure Monday – This might involve getting children to do floor, wall climbing and map reading all within their living room


Tuesday Play – Imaginative play utilising resources in the house to create games and activities to get active


Wild Wednesday – Some high tempo competitive activities involving personal challenges


Thinking Thursday – Introducing cognitive challenges for children through movement. Active noughts and crosses and introducing an element of competition – whether that be against themselves, the clock, their siblings or remotely with friends


Fun Friday – A chance for children to let loose and have some fun. Dancing and doing what makes them feel good

We would love children to log their activity on Seesaw with what they have done including any photos or videos of them taking part.

Welcome to the P.E. Department page. 


At The Canons C.E. Primary School we believe physical activity is an important part of every childs education. Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a diverse curriculum which is fully inclusive to all children. We believe that sport and physical activity helps the children to develop confidence and character which will support their health and fitness throughout their lives.


It is our belief that children should take part in physical activity daily. This may be in P.E. lessons, lunchtimes or extra-curricular activities. We also believe that children should have the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as team-work, discipline and respect.


Over the year the school will deliver fun and engaging P.E lessons and afterschool clubs for all the children and enter a variety of sports competitions. 


The Curriculum


  • In Key Stage 1 the children develop their fundamental skills which will give them the building blocks to become competent and confident in a range of physical activities. The children will develop these skills in three main areas: locomotion (moving in a range of ways that include: walking, running, jumping and dodging), stability (balancing) and object control (sending, receiving and controlling an object). They will use these building blocks to help them participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending. In addition to this, they will learn and perform dances using simple movement patterns. 


  • In Key Stage 2 the children will continue to apply and develop their fundamental skills linking them together to make actions and sequences of movement.  They will use this to help them play a range of competitive games applying basic principles of attacking and defending. In addition to this they will develop their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance and will performing dances that use a range of movement. In P.E. lessons children will communicate, collaborate and compete with each other and they will be given the opportunity to evaluate their performances, recognising how they can improve their performance and celebrating their own success.


  • In Year 5 our children will attend swimming lessons, taught by qualified swimming instructors. They will be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25-metres using a range of strokes effectively such as front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.
