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:

Netball Practise

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.
