All the teaching staff at Meon Junior School are working with Meon Infant and Moorings Way Infant School colleagues to identify how our curriculum will meet the needs of our children across the three schools.
We believe it is important to plan the learning journey of the children from Year R to Year 6. Even though we are a Junior School, this does not stop us using what the children have already learnt before they leave Infant School. This is vitally important. As three schools, we have worked together to produce a joint intention of what we want the children to learn. Our joint subject teams produced the following statements in September 2019:
Learning in Physical Education
By the end of Year 2
By the time children leave Year 2, they will have a firm understanding of how their body works and moves. They will be able to control movements through development of agility, balance and co-ordination within gymnastics, dance, games and swimming. They will get to experience a competitive environment in which they will develop social skills and gain an appreciation for a healthy lifestyle. This will help them in their journey to find their place in the world.
By the end of Year 6
By the time children leave Year 6, they will be able to apply movements in isolation and combination to a range of physical activities. They will become competent in gymnastics and athletics through the development of a number of physical attributes. They will be introduced to various competitive game, understanding the unique rules and how to critique their own and peers’ performance in each sport. The above coupled with opportunities to experience outdoor activity will help them on their journey to find their place in the world.
