PE at Fonthill

Children at Fonthill are supported in leading healthy and active lives. They become confident sports men and women who understand the importance of physical activity in their daily lives. They are motivated to succeed  and to understand the importance of developing sportsmanship attitudes with emphasis on sharing, fairness, respect and working well as a team.


In line with the Fonthill READS curriculum, PE is taught through:

Remember— Children develop key skills in a range of sports and activities. They learn to remember the rules of games, and how to perform certain skills using sporting equipment.

Explain— Whilst learning these sporting skills and abilities, the children learn why they might use a certain skill e.g. why an over-arm throw might be more appropriate, or why they might block a player in a netball game.

Apply—Children will have the ability to apply the skills they have learned throughout the year. This could be in competitions (within school, across the trust or locally), at after school clubs or in clubs children participate in outside of school.

Develop— Throughout the year, children develop positive attitudes towards PE, confidently participate in PE lessons and understand the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. The skills that the learn in the Early Years are developed each year, so that by the end of Key Stage 2, they have established skills in a range of sports and activities.

Share— Over time, children will have developed a positive attitude towards physical activity and will have the confidence to showcase their activity to others. E.g. dance showcase in year 6. They are invited and encouraged to share and celebrate achievements outside of school, as well.
