PE and Sports at Rise Park

PE Curriculum


Foundation Stage

Pupils will develop basic Fundamental Movement Skills based on Agility, Balance and Coordination skills throughout the year. Pupils will be given lots of opportunities before or during their lesson period to practice and build upon these skills. Pupils will start to learn the importance of PE and why we do exercise on a regular basis. Pupils will understand the importance of respect for others and be able to collaborate effectively. Pupils will also develop and enhance their social skills.


Key Stage 1

Pupils will develop further their Fundamental Movement skills again based on Agility, Balance and Coordination. Pupils will be confident in the basic movements such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. Pupils will start to develop these skills and link them into other activities when taking part in various topics across the PE Curriculum. Pupils will be introduced into competitive activities, competing against themselves and sometimes against others.


Key Stage 2

Pupils will continue to develop Fundamental Movements Skills based on Agility, Balance and Coordination, and will use these skills to a broader range of activities that are sport specific such as Tennis, Basketball, Cricket, Handball, Hockey etc… Pupils will enhance their communication and collaboration skills and will learn how to compete against others learning in the process how to win and lose, and demonstrate simple attacking and defending principles within modified small sided games. Pupils should start to develop strength, flexibility, different techniques and control and will compare their own and others performances. When comparing their own or others performances pupils will gain knowledge to identify strength and weaknesses and demonstrate how to improve.


Celebrating Swimming

By the end of Year 6 (2019) 93% of our pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of a least 25 metres, 93% could use a range of strokes effectively and 68% of pupils could perform safe self rescue in different water-based situations.

After School Clubs

Sport doesn’t just stop when the school day ends. Here at Rise Park Primary and Nursery after school clubs take place Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3.20 till 4.20pm. We aim to be inclusive to children across all the key stages. The Sports ambassadors regularly meet with Mr Jones to discuss which year groups will be given the opportunity to take part in each club. We introduce our pupils to sports that prove popular amongst our children and sports that wouldn’t ordinarily be accessible within the curriculum, such as Fencing, Handball, Boccia and Archery.

Parents in for PE

Our Parents in for PE sessions are a fantastic method of marrying two important principles; families and physical exercise.  The chance for our parents to join their child’s PE lesson with our sports specialist Mr Jones is enjoyable for everyone. Year 6 loved learning about Crab Football, Year 5 performed a traditional Hakka dance, Year 4 served up a Tennis lesson and Year 3 parents came in for a game of Rounders. Year 1 and 2 will also be holding sessions before the year ends. Make sure you keep an eye out for your invitation.

Fun Fit

The aim of Fun Fit is to improve a child’s co-ordination skills and underlying postural stability and balance. The activities in the Fun Fit programme also refine hand-eye coordination, body awareness, spatial awareness and ball skills. The programme runs every half term from Tuesday to Friday before school. Children who attend the Fun Fit club often see an improvement in their ability to focus in the classroom and increased self-confidence.

The Sherriff’s Challenge is this years whole school initiative at Rise Park Primary and Nursery. The Sheriff’s Challenge can be done in school uniform during class time with the teacher or throughout a PE lesson as a good warm up with Mr Jones. Laps are ran on either our 50m course (KS1 playground) or 100m course (KS2) for as long as possible. The distance covered is logged on an iPad so the children can track their personal and class scores and work together to reach their goals.


Our well-structured competitive school sport programme offers the opportunity for all pupils to be involved in a range of sports and provide a meaningful experience, whatever their age or ability. Competitive sport develops a range of life skills which can support our students as they progress through school and into adult life, everything from the benefits of teamwork, resilience and leadership skills, to the respect and humility in handling success or disappointment. Hence naturally it’s of the upmost importance to allow our pupils to have these experiences through school sport competitions. Our year 3 and 4 children loved travelling to Harvey Haddon to compete in an athletics competition last term. Our year 4 Dodgeball team will be representing Rise Park Primary and Nursery competing against our local family of schools later this half term and upper Key stage 2 children are busy preparing for the Cricket competitions planned for later in the summer.

A nice way to finish off the first half term, playing Dodgeball in the sunshine on a Friday. A good turn out from the Aspire school family saw 7 teams turn up at Robin Hood Primary and battle it out. A huge thankyou to Mr Gray and Robin hood Primary for holding the event and Rise Park Primary are forward to the next one.

Our Y6 Girls performed brilliantly at the 'Forest Zone' football carnival. They narrowly missed out on the runners-up spot by 1 goal.
