Long Term Planning
|Embody the school’s values
Kindness, resilience, challenge, courage, aspiration
Post pandemic, and given how Liskeard sits in the highest obesity rates in Cornwall, we wish to emphasise positive health
|Going beyond the curriculum
Our newly formed Sports Academy allows KS2 children to access a wide range of external providers, e.g. Exeter Chiefs, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth Argyle.
|Community & Cornish Roots
We wish to make use of our exemplary landscape, and in particular our new bike track.
Developing the joy of movement as the foundation of physical education
|Health and Fitness
The awareness of how the body changes through exercise, alongside nutrition.
|Engagement in competition
This will be both against one’s self and against others.
|Collaboration and communication
Children will enjoy working with one another.
|Evaluation of performance
Children will become able to recognise, and improve on, their own performance.
