Physical Education at Ysgol Emmanuel develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. By including dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics, health, fitness and well-being activities and adventurous activities in our curriculum, we ensure that all the needs of the National Curriculum are met. Physical Education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, communication, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
At Ysgol Emmanuel through weekly Physical Education lessons extra curricular activities and links with sports clubs our sporting aim is to provide opportunities for pupils within school and in the community to develop a love of sport and the opportunities that it brings to our lives. These include appreciation of a healthy lifestyle, sportsmanship and working as part of a team.
