How PE (Physical Education) is taught at The Avenue

Each pupil at The Avenue Primary School receives a minimum of two hours of PE a week. It is taught by a combination of class teachers and Acorn Education Trust PE specialists through a broad and balanced curriculum.

At Key Stage 1 the curriculum is designed to provide pupils opportunities to improve their agility, flexibility, coordination and balance as individuals and in small groups.

At Key Stage 2 pupils are taught a wider range of fundamental movement skills and develop these in more sport specific activities. The curriculum reflects the local demand of invasion games alongside an appreciation for the aesthetic activities of gymnastics and dance all of which feed into Acorn festivals or competitions.
