Physical Education

At St Mary’s children receive active and varied P.E lessons. During the year they participate in Gymnastics, Dance, Games, Athletics and Swimming (In year 5/6.) We follow Lancashire Small Schools Physical Education scheme of work. This is designed to give children opportunities to acquire and develop skills and tactical awareness, which they then apply in an authentic context that is suitably challenged for their age and ability. We also encourage children to have a good knowledge and understanding of fitness and health.  Often we have specialised teachers/coaches into school to work with the children on developing skills and techniques across the P.E curriculum. From Year 1 upwards children will have chance to represent the school at local sporting events.
