PHYSICAL EDUCATION (P.E)
At Oxclose Primary Academy our children develop mobility, co-ordination and control through a variety of skills in Dance, Gymnastics, Games, Swimming and also take part in Outdoor and Adventurous activities and challenges. Children are given the opportunity to swim in KS2 and we aim for all children leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m. In KS2 children also have the opportunity to complete the Bikeability programme.
Through their P.E. lessons the children develop their performance skills, confidence, teamwork and Sportsmanship. This curriculum area supports the children’s awareness and knowledge of their own bodies and how to promote their well-being.
Throughout the school children take part in a wide range of tournaments and sports festivals both within school (intra-competitions), between year groups and with other schools (inter-competitions).
Oxclose Community Academy Festivals
Year 6 children took part in the first festival of the year and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Our Sports Leaders set up fun activities over lunch time, everyone had a great time.
Year 4 Skipping Festival
Our Year 4 Skipping team took part in a Washington Schools Skipping Festival on Tuesday 26th April. The team had been training for a number of weeks and put lots of time and effort into their skipping. The festival was very exciting and a good time was had by all. Each child in our team of 30 skipped to the best of their abilities and we were very successful in the competition. The whole team won the silver medal for their choreographed skip dance and many of our skippers won bronze, silver and gold medals in the individual and smaller team events.
Well done to our Oxclose Skipping Team
