Physical Education

Year 6 Physical Education

In Year 6 the pupils will build on previous learning from lower years. There will be added skills and rules in the different game’s areas as both rugby and football change the number of players and pitch size for the U11 age group.

The pupils will look at different aspects during physical education lessons which will give them a wider range of core skills from differing activities.

Enrichment

Basketball, Volleyball, Table Tennis
