PE

PE is an important part of our curriculum at Ellwood Community Primary School.  We have a long tradition of being an active school and have enjoyed a great deal of success in a wide range of sports.
 
In addition to our PE lessons, which are described below, we also have a wide range of after-school clubs, and regularly invite a range of visitors in to introduce new sports and activities to us.  This year, this has included golf, archery, fencing, martial arts and yoga.
At EYFS and KS1 our main focus in on developing gross and fine motor skills and ensuring that the children have the ability to run, jump, balance, throw, catch and kick.  As we practice, our abilities improve and we enjoy staying active in our learning.
 
 
In Key Stage 2 we look to build on the skills we have acquired in Key Stage 1 and start taking part in some school competitions.  We enjoy lots of team games such as football, hockey and end-ball, but we also practise gymnastics, athletics, dance and swimming as individual events.
