Athletes at Yeadon Westfield Junior School

 

At Yeadon Westfield Junior School, we recognise the importance of Physical Education and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our Physical Education curriculum is to provide all children with high quality P.E and Sports provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles.

 

We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging P.E lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. At YWJS we have a bespoke P.E curriculum which offers extensive opportunities for children to encounter multiple sports such as Orienteering, Karate and Boxercise.  All children receive two hours of Physical Education each week, with one of those hours taught by an external sports provider (Velocity Sports). For one hour of their weekly allocation Year Four, are taught swimming.

 

We want our pupils to appreciate and be curious about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as team work, communication, respectresilience and leadership, as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.

Spring Term 2021 - Year 5 - Orienteering

Have you ever navigated an orienteering course whilst being chased by aliens? This was the challenge for Year 5 on a sunny March afternoon. Year 5 enjoyed following a route using their map skills whilst racing against their peers. However, they had to be careful of three pupils wearing alien hats. If they were caught, they would have to hand their map over and become an alien themselves! Much fun was had by all.

Spring Term 2021 - Year 4 - PE/Geography

Year 4 have been practising how to be mountain rescuers in our Geography topic called 'Mighty Mountains'. The learning objective of the lesson was to understand what the role of the mountain rescue team was.

The children created a scenario where the team would have to venture into the mountains to rescue someone and then they had to take an object (an injured person) across a mountain range (obstacle course in the hall) without dropping/injuring the person!

We combined this with our P.E session today : )
