We go about achieving this in a variety of ways. All classes across the school benefit from use of Real PE. The Real PE package focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. Children learn the skills necessary in order to apply themselves successfully, and with stamina, to the sporting environment.
Across the school, children also benefit from a ‘Summer Specialism’. This allows children to learn a wide range of sports. The sequence of sports is constructed to get more challenging as the children work their way through the school.
|4||Cricket (including ‘Chance to Shine’)|
|3||Summer 2||Introductory activity – additional activity in light of pandemic|
|4||Both classes – Summer term||General swimming – additional activity in light of pandemic|
|5||Both classes – Spring term||General swimming – typical Hillfort lesson, as it would have been pre-pandemic|
|6||3 week block – Summer term||3 weeks of final activity|
It should be noted that in KS2 children can sign up for the “Sports Academy”. This involves a structured programme provided by Hillfort colleagues, Exeter Chiefs RFC, Plymouth Albion RFC and Plymouth Argyle FC. After Easter, we welcomed international judo coach Sensei Eva Minarikova of Kazoku Judo Club – up to 60 children staying after school to learn this wonderful martial art! This exciting opportunity comes after a taster assembly where Black Belt Sensei Eva had good fun throwing our Headteacher, Dr Cook, around the hall. Our children seem very keen to sign up now!
