PE curriculum at Brownhills Ormiston Academy
The department’s vision,
Sequencing of lessons
Throughout the key stages students will have a balanced timetable of invasion, net and wall, striking and fielding, dance, gymnastics, swimming and water safety and outdoor adventurous activities.
In Year 7, students will develop and master the fundamental skills to start performing in sports on the curriculum. These sports include football, rugby, netball, swimming, basketball, athletics, cricket, fitness, rounders, Dance and OAA. They will learn how to complete a warm up and cool down and understand the basic rules of the sports they participate in.
In year 8 students will look to build on the fundamental skills they have learned in Year 7 and start to develop these with advanced skills. An emphasis on application in competitive situations will be introduced with students starting to explore tactics.
In year 9 students will continue to develop their technique and performance through competitive situations and will implement tactics and strategies to use in competition. Students will participate across a broad range of physical activities across the year.
Leadership is promoted across all key stages with students having the opportunity to progress through different sports leadership roles within lessons and through extra-curricular
Across KS4, students will participate in demanding physical activities to gain a greater understanding of personal fitness, and active, healthy lifestyles. Students will be taught the benefits of having an active, healthy lifestyle to help continue to achieve this beyond school.
Students will continue to develop and evaluate their performances across a broad range of physical activities including outdoor adventurous activities.
At KS4 students have the option to study BTEC Sport. Four units will be taught, unit 1: Fitness for sport and exercise. Unit 2: Practical performance in sport. Unit 3: Applying the principles of personal training. Unit 6: Leading sports activities. Unit 1 is an external assessment and Unit 2,3 and 6 are internally assessed through coursework.
In Physical Education students will be formatively assessed in each lesson and will receive a summative assessment at the end of each topic. Students will be assessed on their ability to perform the skills and techniques taught in lesson through isolation and competition. Students will be asked recall specific teaching points from their lesson through a range of questioning. A “Do Now” is completed at the start of every lesson and often students will be asked to self or peer assess their own or others sports performance. Those studying BTEC Sport will receive summative assessment on the completion of coursework and will be externally assessed through their Unit 1 examination.
