Tansley Primary School

Learn, Lead, Achieve, Together We Succeed


Physical Education takes place weekly in each class throughout the school.  The Reception children follow the EYFS curriculum.  In Key Stage One, children will work on developing their fundamental movement skills such as running, skipping, throwing and catching.  As the children move on into Key Stage Two, these skills are continued and developed, but they become more sport specific.  For example, the child will develop their skills in throwing and catching to take part in a game of cricket. 


Throughout the school the children will take part in many areas of Physical Education, these include, gymnastics, dance, invasion games, net and wall games, striking and fielding and swimming. 


The children are also encouraged to take part in sporting clubs that are run at both lunchtimes and after school.
