Welcome to the Oaks Primary Academy P.E. page. Here you will be able to find out all the information regarding P.E. and the P.E. curriculum at Oaks.
At Oaks Primary Academy we provide high quality physical education offering a wide and varied curriculum for all children.
Our PE curriculum enables all pupils to access, enjoy and be successful in a variety of physical activities. They learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations whilst building their resilience and enhancing mental and emotional well-being. The curriculum is further enriched with a variety of after school clubs including yoga, dance basketball, handball, tennis, outdoor & adventurous activities, badminton, cricket and athletics.
In Early Years, we have recently introduced Yoga and Write Dance. This develops gross and fine motor skills through story based activities. These are fun activities which help children to become more confident and competent when participating in their daily activities.
As pupils move through the school, they further develop the wide range of skills to be able to perform, analyse and make decisions, as well as understanding the concept of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. Alongside this, they also learn about the importance of a well-balanced diet and how fitness has a positive impact on their learning in and outside of the classroom laying the foundations of a healthier lifestyle.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
