Term 1 Curriculum News

Welcome back to term 1 2021. This term we are focusing on our ball skills and learning to invade space and outwit an opponent in Key stage 2. We are focusing on Rugby skills and small games in preparation for the TWRFC festival in October. Pupils have been learning the importance of passing and moving into space and supporting  the player with the ball . We have also been very fortunate to have a local Rugby coach supporting our pupils with their learning in curriculum lessons along side Mr Levett


Key stage 1 have been continuing to develop their ability to invade space with a ball and we have also continued to focus on Multi Skills including being able to run with a ball, pass and catch the ball and more recently we are discovering the importance of changing direction to score tries with year 2. Year 1 continue to learn how to throw using the correct technique and how to pass and catch a ball from different heights. We are delighted to see so many pupils at the range of clubs on offer after school during the week. 

Over the course of the year the pupils follow a longer term curriculum plan allowing them to engage in a range of sports during curriculum time throughout the year. The aim is to give a broad range of sports so every pupil has the opportunity to flourish with their skills and fitness.


Sports are usually taught in advance of upcoming competitions to give pupils the opportunity to develop their skills. Clubs also form part of the training for these competitions and allow us to select teams ready for the events. Here is the most recent long term plan for 2021-2022 for our pupils across the key stages.
