Key Stage Two
Pupils will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Students will take part in communicating, collaborating and competing with each other to solve problems. Students develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. Students will link sporting skills to competitive situations and practice a version of sports games.
Pupils will be taught to:
· Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination with linking skills.
· Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking (out witting opponents) and defending (stopping)
· Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
· Perform dances using a range of movement patterns
· Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team (Outdoor Adventurous Activity OAA)
· Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best (Sports days and own lesson measuring)
Swimming and water safety
Swimming instruction must be provided in either Key Stage One or Key Stage Two.
In particular, pupils should be taught to:
· Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
· Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
· Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
