Year 7

In Year 7, students will build upon and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, to become more competent, confident and apply them across different sports and physical activities. Students should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise and sporting activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.  Students will experience different activities covering a variety of the following: Multi-Skills, Rugby, Football, Desk-to-5k, Athletics and Rounders. In addition to this, students will also have the opportunity to take part in PDT after school clubs where they can gain experience of a variety of extra sports. This allows students to build their confidence within the subject and make an informed decision when choosing their options at the end of year eight.

As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity. In Year 8 more emphasis is placed on students to take different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating.
