Physical Education Key Stage 1

Curriculum Co-ordinator: Stephanie Morris

Saint Ronan’s provides a magnificent environment for physical education and throughout the school the pupils are encouraged to participate in all kinds of activities and lead an active life. In the Pre-Prep we prepare the children for the Prep School by teaching them a variety of skills and tactics, as well as encouraging them to play competitively but fairly. Every day of the school year we aim for the children to take part in some kind of energetic activity. The focus of formal games lessons, taught by the Prep School staff, is on building coordination and strength, as well as early ball and control skills in preparation for the games curriculum of the Prep School. The framework for these lessons is given below and usually includes teaching and practice within the listed disciplines. They also take part in swimming lessons and have music and movement/dance lessons.
