Striking and Fielding

Intent: PE – Striking and Fielding     


Our school aims:
Through our Christian values, we aim for:

  • Happy, kind individuals;
  • Opportunities for all;
  • Love of learning for life;
  • Motivated children who can thrive and succeed; 
  • Empowered children equipped with the skills to flourish in the wider world;
  • Resilient, respectful and responsible children.

The curriculum is designed with our pupils and the Holmer community in mind. It enables children to access and enhance their understanding of their home, their city and the wider community, developing their cultural capital and giving them opportunities and choices about their future and their impact as they progress through their school career and beyond. This will help them become successful members of modern British society, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities.

What knowledge will the children have embedded?

What retention may be demonstrated?
Here are some example questions that may be used to assess children’s understanding.

Cultural Capital 

  • Children will learn a variety of skills. They will be able to understand the mutual respect needed to compete in a sporting competition.
  • This will be evident through the way they conduct themselves when they compete. They will be tolerant of the different faiths and beliefs that contribute to team competitions locally, nationally and internationally.
  • The children will understand that they are to be compliant with the rules of a game and that we live in a democratic society where both men and women can play mixed sports.
