Physical Education at Denfield Park.
Here at Denfield, we strongly believe in providing life long skills to equip our children both in and out of the classroom. Physical Education helps provide children with the opportunity to develop a positive attitude towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle, build competitiveness with themselves and others and understand the importance of values such as fair play, teamwork and sportsmanship. Our P.E lessons are fun and engaging, building on skills each year and accessible to all and provide varying levels of challenge. We encourage children to participate in competitive sport through classes, houses, and district competitions!
We are lucky to have the expertise of Mr Randall - a qualified sports coach, and throughout the year external coaches/teams come in and hold workshops across the year groups. This is a great way to inspire and excite the children! During children's time at Denfield, pupils learn a wide range of skills, applying and developing them in competitive and non competitive sport. Collaboration and communication helps our children to recognise and evaluate their own successes.
In Year 5 and 6 children receive the opportunity to swim as well as the opportunity to take part in a residential visit. These trips help our children to gain independence and experience outdoor education.
Within each year group (yr3-6) are trained sports leaders who support and instigate game play with their peers at break and lunchtimes.
We aim to offer a wide variety of after school sporting clubs, to all age groups. The clubs are run over two terms by either Mr Randall or external sports coaches. Please see the timetable in the clubs section of the website where you will find more information about what's on offer and fees.
Children come to school wearing their PE kit & PE days are as follows:
Monday - Year 3
Tuesday - Year 5 / Rabbits
Wednesday - Year 2 / Year 1
Thursday - Year R / Year 6
Friday - SEND Unit / Year 4
Guidelines on the dress code for both indoor and outdoor PE lessons can be found in our Policy.
