More Students – Playing More Sport – More Often

The PE department aims to ensure that students develop a lifelong love of sport and exercise, follow a healthy lifestyle and achieve their fully potential.

Students in KS3 and KS4 have 2 hours of PE/Games every week and in KS5 they have Wednesday afternoon games. The students can also take GCSE PE in KS4 and A Level or BTEC Sport and Exercise Science (both level 3 qualifications) in KS5.

To achieve our aims we use the triadic model. We develop the student’s cognitive and affective attitudes and influence their behaviours towards regular sport, exercise and training.

Affective:
Students follow varied programmes that develop a whole range of team sports, individual sports and different exercise activities.

The aim is for students to understand and know that playing sport and keeping healthy is really good fun.

Please see our curriculum maps by using the tabs above for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

Behaviour:
The intended behaviour is that students exercise and train. In lessons they are expected to work very hard. Outside of lessons we run a huge extracurricular programme that compliments and develops further the curriculum. It caters for all major team sports, individual sports, recreational activities and a large number of exercise classes. A very high percentage of our students take part in activities out of lessons.

Please click here to see our extracurricular programme.

Cognitive:
Students develop an understanding of why regular exercise and training is important and how to follow a healthy lifestyle. This knowledge is developed even further in our exam courses at KS4 and KS5.

PE Kit Check List

All students will need the following items of kit in September 2016.

  1. A school rugby shirt
  2. A red polo shirt
  3. Plain navy blue shorts and/or skirt
  4. A pair of red socks
  5. A pair of white socks
  6. Football boots
  7. Training shoes

As a department we also strongly recommend that all students have the following items:

  1. Shin pads – For hockey and football.
  2. A gum shield – This should be worn for hockey and rugby but many top players are also wearing them in other sports such as basketball. There are many different types of gum shields but the type highly recommended are the custom made gum shields produced by dentists. These offer far more protection for the person.
Health News

Students will work hard during PE and Games lessons when they return in September. It is important to maintain their fitness over the summer holidays so that they can achieve their full potential in all areas of the PE curriculum.

I have included the latest guidelines from the ACSM and the AHA on the basic recommendation for healthy adults under the age of 65. I just thought keeping healthy could be a family event!

Guidelines

Do moderately intense cardio 30 mins a day, 5 days a week or
Do vigorously intense cardio 20 mins a day, 3 days a week
AND
Do 8-10 strength-training exercises, 8-12 repetitions of each exercise twice a week.

Moderate-intensity means working hard enough to raise your heart rate and break a sweat, yet still being able to carry on a conversation.

We are always available if you want to ask any questions regarding your son/daughters PE/Games. Please either phone on 01297 442 232 or e-mail isnowling@woodroffe.dorset.sch.uk.

GCSE PE covers both the physical and academic aspects of the subject. Students have three practical sessions and two theory sessions per fortnight. This course gives a very good grounding for A Level PE.

Year 10 & 11 Games

All students in Key Stage 4 will follow a two year programme for two periods per week. The curriculum programme links with the extra-curricular programme to give students the opportunity to play more sport, more often and at a higher level. There are a number of specific aims for students including:

  • To develop and maintain an active, life-long interest in sport, health and fitness.
  • To develop skills in a range of activities and give students the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
  • For students to find a sport/activity that they enjoy participating in.
  • To enhance student fitness levels.
  • To experience different roles in sport.
