PE Curriculum

Exminster's Vision for PE

To promote the health and well-being of the children in Exminster Primary School, through high quality physical activity and health education which enhances fitness, competence, skill development and a life-long enjoyment of physical activity.

 

PE within the National Curriculum

PE at Exminster is currently organised in accordance with the guidelines stated within the National Curriculum (2014).  In Key Stage One and Key Stage Two we teach high-quality physical education using the recommended subject content, which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in both competitive and non-competitive sport.

 

Key Stage One Content

EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 use the Dartmoor School Sport Partnership Key Stage One resources and curriculum documents. Fundamental movement skills, gymnastics, dance, games development and physical development are taught in each year group with key progressions each term. Year 2 are taught swimming and water safety skills in the Spring Term.

 

Key Stage Two Content

Through the Devon PEDPASS Medium Term Planning documents, Key Stage Two children are taught in the following areas:

- Games activities

- Gymnastics activities

- Dance activities

- Swimming activities and water safety

- Athletics activities

- Outdoor and Adventurous activities encompassed within a residential visit.

 

PE outside the National Curriculum

Alongside the legal requirements of Physical Education within school, Exminster Primary offers other additional physical learning opportunities throughout the day such as:

- Huff and Puff – Active Playtimes

- A range of lunch time and after school sports clubs

- Festivals and Tournaments throughout the year

- Change 4 Life sports club

Sport Premium Funding

What is the Sport Premium Funding?

In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 to improve provision of PE and School Sport.

 

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated directly to the schools. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Sport Premium until 2020.

Objectives of the Sport Premium Funding

The objectives of improving PE and School Sport include:

 

·         The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

·         The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

·         Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

·         Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

·         Increased participation in competitive sport.

 

 

DSSP KS1 Football Tournament

A stunning autumn afternoon at Stover School saw fifteen teams from seven Primary schools come together to play in friendly competitive Football Tournaments. For a majority of the Year 1 and Year 2 children this was the first time they had represented their school, and for many it was their first ever football ‘match’ experience.

The buzz of excitement and the sheer determination and enthusiasm on the pitch was wonderful to see. There was also a lot of very proud parents cheering from the side lines. With the schools divided up into three Pools, each team played four matches. Throughout the afternoon the matches improved as the pupils gained in confidence and understanding of the rules and team play.

Events like these don’t simply happen without a lot of people pulling together. So, huge thanks to the Stover ground staff who set up the six pitches we needed and to the older Stover students who helped referee.  Thanks to the Chelsea FC Foundation Academy (SDCC) boys (George & Matthew) who supported the event by refereeing and being great role models to the youngsters. Many thanks to all the primary staff and parents who organised the children to have this experience.

Exminster entered three teams into the competition with two of them winning the pool they were in. Unfortunately for the third team, they were in the same pool as the highest scoring team in the competition which was another from Exminster. They managed a draw against their classmates and came 2nd only by goal difference. Congratulations to all of the participants.

DSSP Tag Rugby Competition

On Wednesday 4th October 2017, fourteen children from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 participated in a DSSP Tag Rugby Competition at Newton Abbot RFC.

Between the two teams, they came away with and an impressive two wins and two draws. All the children were very sporting and participated with pride.

A massive thanks goes to the parent helpers who stayed to cheer on and coach the teams. Luckily for the event organisers, Thomas Waldrom was spotted by some children which meant the medal ceremony was a much more exciting affair for everyone! Thank you to him for coming along and supporting the teams from Exminster.

DSSP Cross Country

On Tuesday 26th September 2017, 30 children from KS2 took part in a DSSP Cross Country event at Stover School. Year 3/4 children had to run approximately 1000m and Year 5/6 children had to run approximately 1300m.

In true Exminster style, all children that took part persevered to finish the race and each one can be very proud of their achievements.

It was fantastic for them all to be enjoying such a huge event, as there were about 500 runners taking part in the four different races.

This is the first of three DSSP Cross Country events over the academic year, so there is bound to be more success in the ones in the spring and summer terms.

Well done to all the children who took part and a big thank you to parents for helping out with transportation to and from the event.

DSSP KS2 Cross Country

On Tuesday 4th July, 49 children from Exminster School took part in the DSSP Cross Country event at Stover School. For Year 3/4 the event was run over 1.2km and for Year 5/6 the event was run over 1.5km. It was fantastic to see so many of the Exminster children compete at the event. Well done to every child and their fantastic motivation towards the activity. Tom M said, "I'm really proud because I improved on my position from last time." Edward said, "I tried really hard and kept on going even when I felt out of breath." It was a great result for the Year 3/4 team as they finished 3rd overall out of all of the schools competing.  A special mention goes to Thomas Brown from 4S who won his race - beating more than 80 other competitors.

KS1 Sports Morning


On Monday 19th June 2017, KS1 took part in the annual Sports Morning where they competed in 7 rotating activities and then finished with a running race.

The children had been practicing their activities in PE lessons leading up to Sports Morning, so they were all aware of the requirements for each activity.

As the scorching sun was beating down, teachers and parents battled against unhelpful gazebos, but eventually there was enough shade for the children as they awaited the first activity.

Each activity ran very smoothly with the support of the Year 5 children. Congratulations to them all for leading the activities and providing scores and feedback.
Emily said: "It's lovely for KS1 to have the opportunity to play fun games and I've loved helping the children to try and reach their potential."

The children's scores were added up for the Javelin, Long Jump and Bean Bag Throw, and these scores will be added to the KS2 Sports Morning, with the overall winning coloured group announced next week.
Amber: "I enjoyed the clothes event because I like dressing up in different costumes."
Tia: "The hurdles were my favourite because I got to run."
Havana: "I'm a really good thrower so I enjoyed the javelin the most."
Quinton: "I was running over the hurdles and I went very fast."
Erin: "We went under the net with a cup full of water. We put it in the bucket at the end and ran back."

A huge thank you must go to the parents who provided gazebos and helped with putting them up and down, organising equipment and getting involved in the mums and dads races.

The KS1 Sports Morning was a huge success this year. The behaviour and attitude of all the children in KS1 was amazing in the heat, with them showing enjoyment and enthusiasm and motivating themselves to reach their potential. Mrs Martin organised the Sports Day brilliantly again and we will miss her organisation next year!

Well done everyone.

DSSP Year 4 Tri Golf Event

On Wednesday 14th June, 10 children from Year 4 took part in a Tri Golf event at Stover School. They developed their skills of pitching the ball towards the hall. They had to use fantastic coordination to accurately put the ball into the whole. Well done to all the children who took part.

DSSP Quadkicks Athletics

On Monday 12th June, eight children from Year 5 took part in an athletics event at South Dartmoor Community College. The children had to compete in a 60m sprint, a 600m run and lots of different throwing and jumping events. Well done to all the children who took part.

DSSP Year 5/6 Rounders Competition

On Tuesday 23rd May 2017, nine Year 6 children took part in a DSSP Rounder Competition at South Dartmoor Community College.

In total, the children played 4 games against tough opponents, and eventually ended up with one win and three very narrow losses.

It was very clear that all opposing teams had been well drilled in the 'tactics' of Rounders, but all of the children from Exminster Community Primary School showed enthusiasm and perseverance to finish up in a very respectable eighth position.

Well done all of you.

DSSP Year 3 Beach Cricket Festival

On Wednesday 24th May, eight children from Year 3 had the rare opportunity to go and play sport on the beach! They went to Goodrington Sands for a DSSP Beach Cricket Festival.

The children learnt a variety of cricketing skills through a number of games - throwing and catching, bouncing balls against a net, striking balls with a bat, obstacle races involving ladders and hoops, and some good old fashioned sand building.

The weather was excellent and the quality of sport matched the fantastic sunshine.

Jack: "The best part was when I got to build stuff in the sand! I also loved throwing a Nerf Howler as far as I could and it went quite far."

Poppy: "I enjoyed when we had to throw the balls and hit the sports leaders. If we hit them once they'd lose an arm, if we hit them twice they'd lose another arm and if we a third time then they'd die! Not really die, but just pretend as part of the game."

Well done to all the Year 3 children who participated.

DSSP Girls Kwik Cricket Competition

On Monday 22nd May 2017, eight girls from Year 6 took part in a DSSP Girls Kwik Cricket Competition at South Devon Cricket Club in Newton Abbot.

The girls were involved in three cricket games, winning two and losing one. Their performance could be good enough to get into the Area Finals - we will have to wait and see!

Well done to all pupils who took part, particularly those who were playing cricket for the first time. You represented the school with pride and performed brilliantly.

Year 3/4 Football Competition

On Friday 21st April 2017, 7 chaps from Year 3 and 4 took part in a 7-a-side Football Competition at Forches Cross. We had qualified for the Trophy competition by winning our qualifying group, and the lads kept on their fantastic record of doing very well.

From six games we won three times, drew twice and lost one, scoring ten goals and conceding only two.

With their highly rated coach (Mr Wilsher) on the touchline, the boys were outplaying the opposition in most games, but a loss came when Mr Wilsher had to referee a game elsewhere and the boys kicked off without the tactical genius coaching them from the side. Fortunately, Mr Wilsher returned for the next game and normal service was restored.

This loss was to prove costly though, as a draw against the eventual winners put Exminster into second position.

Finishing strongly with a 4-0 win, Exminster rounded of the competition in style. All the boys showed great quality on the ball, off the ball, and in their sportsmanship towards the opposition.

Congratulations to all the players on your fantastic second spot finish, and thanks to all the parents who helped out.

DLP Boccia Event

On Friday 21st April 2017, Ratcliffe School hosted the third annual Boccia Tournament to be held within the Dawlish Learning Partnership. Children from schools across the  Partnership came together to play Boccia in a friendly competition.

Boccia is an inclusive seated bowling game and involves two teams playing against each other to bowl their balls as close to the ‘jack’ as possible.

The event proved to be a very positive experience for all teams involved and all pupils seemed to enjoy the calm, relaxed atmosphere associated with the game, with the ‘knock out’ competition adding some excitement to proceedings.

In total, 8 teams took part representing Ratcliffe, Cockwood, Westcliff, Kenn, Starcross, Kenton, & Exminster Primary Schools.

The team from Exminster successfully showed their skills in teamwork, cooperation and tactics but were eventually pipped at the post by Kenn who won for the 2nd year in a row.

Well done to all four children who attended.

DSSP Gymnastics Competition

On Thursday 30th March, 12 children took part in a DSSP Gymnastics Balance competition at South Dartmoor Community College. The children had to attend some gymnastics practise sessions where they got used to their balances and floor routines. Year 3 and 4 performed paired balances whilst Year 5 and 6 had to balance in threes. Well done to everybody who took part for your fantastic effort and hard work! Thank you to the parents who were able to assist with transport to the event.

DSSP Year 4 and 5 Badminton

On Tuesday 17th January 2017 eight children from years 4 and 5 took part in a DSSP Badminton Event at KEVICC (Totnes).

The children were playing by the standard rules of badminton, where they scored a point if the shuttlecock landed in the opposition half of the court. 

The children got split into A and B teams, and the children came an overall 5th. Although it is a sport which the children rarely get to experience, they all threw themselves into the matches with gusto and highlighted the exceptional standard of behaviour  associated with Exminster Community Primary School.

Evie "I really enjoyed it because I had never played badminton before. Hopefully next time I'll be able to play more games."
