Physical Education - School Sport - Physical Activity
Our Reading Scheme at Wilkinson
School sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. in the extended curriculum) within school settings; this is sometimes referred to as out-of-school-hours learning. Again, the context for the learning is physical activity. The ‘school sport’ programme has the potential to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in physical education. It also forms a vital link with ‘community sport and activity’.
We have a long sporting tradition at Wilkinson across a range of sporting disciplines. Take a look at some of our sporting successes.
Physical activity is a broad term referring to all bodily movement that uses energy. It includes all forms of physical education, sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor and adventurous activities, active travel (e.g. walking, cycling, rollerblading, scooting) and routine, habitual activities such as using the stairs, doing housework and gardening.
At Wilkinson Primary School we place a immense importance on communicating these values to our children. We provide as many opportunities as possible to help them take part in the activities listed above.
