At Morda, we aim to instil a lifelong enjoyment and engagement in sport and physical activity. Our Physical Education curriculum is underpinned by the school values of Courage, Compassion and Fairness.
Children will develop the courage to take on new sporting challenges and perform outside their comfort zone. They will develop personal excellence through honesty, teamwork and respect. They will build self-belief, passion and determination to succeed in a range of sports including: invasion games, net/wall games, striking/fielding games, target games, swimming, dance and gymnastics. Children will be encouraged to take part in intra and interschool sporting competitions.
Children will learn the importance of fairness through fair-play. Through our inclusive Physical education programme, they will learn the importance of equality and taking action to overcome prejudice and discrimination.
Children will show compassion and understand that in sport not everyone can be the winner. They will understand what it takes to persevere succeed and acknowledge others’ successes. We aim for the children to become skilful and intelligent performers and to develop their ideas in a creative way. Our KS2 Sports Leaders Programme develops leadership skills, and an appreciation of the principles of safe practice. Children learn to plan a range of movement sequences, organise equipment and apparatus and design and apply rules.
Our broad enrichment programme of afterschool clubs promotes an enjoyment of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.
Our wider curriculum also includes: an annual residential outdoor and adventurous activity week ( Arthog) for Yr 5 pupils; an annual ‘Be Active Week’ including Bike Ability’ Training and other more unusual sports and fitness activities( e.g. Yoga, first aid, archery, orienteering etc.)
We aim for our children to leave us as fit, active and healthy-living individuals.
