Physical Education at Woodlea
At Woodlea Junior, school we aim to foster a love of physical activity and an understanding of its importance in living and leading a healthy active lifestyle. We want to provide an opportunity for all our pupils to enjoy physical activity that they will keep for the rest of their lives.
We aim to achieve this through a carefully planned curriculum whereby skill based lessons are delivered within four different areas of sport: gymnastics, dance, striking and fielding and invasion games. In line with the Association for Physical Education's outcomes for high quality PE, our curriculum embeds the qualities such as; fair play; communication and team work. These are skills that our children are able to transfer throughout the curriculum. PE lessons we deliver provide our children with a confident understanding of basic skills in year three developing to a competent understanding of tactical awareness in year six.
As well as our inclusive curriculum, children at Woodlea have the opportunity to take part in various different extra-curricular activities provided by staff and external providers. Some of these clubs are, football, netball, hockey, cricket, multi-sports and fencing.
Here are some examples of some of the fantastic from PE at Woodlea:
School Games Mark

EFL Kids Cup
Woodlea's football team successfully won the South Ribble round of the Blackburn Rovers EFL Kids Cup. Unfortunately, the team did not make it through the next round.
Year 3/4 Mini-Tennis Tournament
Children went to South Ribble Tennis Centre to take part in the South Ribble Schools mini-tennis competition. The children tried hard and had some close matches. They all showed great sportsmanship and perseverance.
Some children from Mrs Younis' after school club were selected to and take part in a practise session at Leyland St Mary's High School. It was run by the sports leaders from the local high schools. The children did various different drill and were then able to get some well needed game time against other schools.
