Physical education is an integral part of our school curriculum at Great Kimble Cof E School, All our Key Stage One pupils have at least 2 hours physical activity a week within school time, and we aim to have high quality after school clubs to extend this sporting curriculum every term. Our Reception pupils engage in a range of activities to support their physical development, including bikes, scooters, climbing, using the adventure playground, running round the cross country track and engaging in a range of ball and bat skills. We employ a sports coach from J&C Academy on Tuesday afternoons to teach Year One and Two pupils; this ensures children receive specialist teaching as well as teaching from their class teachers.
Our school is part of the Princes Risborough Liaison group, and as such we benefit from support from the Sports Teachers at Princes Risborough Secondary School. In the Sprping Term of 2014 Miss O’ Donnell is working with Mrs Roberts to improve the gymnastic ability of our pupils in Year Two, whilst Mr Tuffin all pupils have the chance to benefit from specialist teaching of an after school Basketball club in the second part of the Spring Term.
Our Key Stage One pupils learn football, tri-golf, gymnastics, dance, invasion games, athletics, cricket and tennis. All our pupils undertake cross country running to build their stamina and fitness levels.
In the Summer Term our pupils learn some traditional folk dances and dance around the Maypole. There is also an opportunity for them to showcase their skills in the County Dance Festival in High Wycombe.
We take part in inter and intra-school competitions, where our pupils learn to represent their team or school, enjoying competing but also learning the importance of fair play. We are very excited to have joined the Haddenham Area Schools partnership this academic year and are greatly looking forward to engaging in a range of sporting activities with more schools.
Every summer we have a Sports Day where pupils have the opportunity to show a range of skills they have developed over the year including running, jumping, throwing, aiming, ball skills and co-ordination.
