Physical Education

Physical Education

The Landewednack Community Hall has enabled us to develop a comprehensive physical education programme, both in summer and winter.  Large and small apparatus skills, games, dance and drama now have space to be developed fully.

We also have a large playing field which has a large grassed area with a fitness trail as well as a court area suitable for games like netball.  Whenever we can we like to get the children outside and active.

Throughout the year all the junior children take part in athletics, games skills and team games, such as netball, cricket, hockey, badminton, football and tag rugby. We have adopted many ideas from The Real PE curriculum and these support the teaching of these traditional sports. Our infant children have lessons that are more of a multi skill approach. The ABC of sport is taught, so children are given many opportunities to develop their agility, balance and co-ordination. We are proud of the number of after school clubs that are on offer to our children. Throughout the year, the children are able to access tag rugby, football, netball and dance. We also like to take advantage of the area in which we live. During the autumn term the junior children attend Helston swimming pool for lessons.  In the summer term our year 5 and 6 children are given the opportunity to go sailing on the Helford river with the Helford River Sailing Trust and also attend surfing lessons with Dan Joel's Surf School based at Poldhu beach in Mullion.

Sport is very important to us all at Landewednack and we are proud that are efforts have been awarded. The school is proud to have achieved the Gold Quality Mark from the Youth Sports Trust for our PE and School Sport provision. This recognises the fact that PE is embedded within the life of our school. This year we were also awarded a Sainsbury's School Games Gold award, a great achievement as not many gold awards are awarded.
