At MFS, we aim to empower our pupils with the knowledge, skills and motivation to lead active and healthy lifestyles. We want our children to see that regular physical activity can foster positive physical, mental, and social health. By offering a variety of engaging activities, we strive to instil a lifelong appreciation for physical fitness, teamwork, and personal growth.
Our vision is to create an environment where every child can thrive, develop confidence, and cultivate a positive attitude towards physical education, ultimately equipping them with the tools to make informed choices for their overall wellbeing, both now and in the future.
How We Teach P.E at MFS
- Weekly PE lessons taught by PE specialist teachers.
- We use a range of coaching techniques and repetition to ensure children get the opportunity to practise new skills.
- We engage pupils in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
- In KS1, we teach pupils to master the basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination.
- In KS2, we teach pupils to continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. We help our children to develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
- At KS2, we encourage children to play competitive games, modified where appropriate, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.
- We supplement the children’s experiences with tournaments and competitions (through Maccabi).
- We promote physical activity through the Daily Mile.
As a result of our PE teaching at Menorah Foundation School, you will see:
- Children who understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
- Children who prioritise physical activity and begin to make informed choices that contribute to their long-term health and happiness.
- Children who have a positive attitude towards physical activity and exercise.
- Children who can demonstrate teamwork, cooperation and sportsmanship.
