Physical Education (PE) has an important role to play in various aspects of human development: physical, social, personal and emotional.
PE develops these aspects by giving students the opportunity to learn about movement and through movement. Students experience a wide variety of physical activities to help develop their movement skills. Through these activities, students can both develop their fitness and increase their confidence and cooperative skills. They form an understanding of the role of physical activity in a healthy lifestyle in order to make informed choices.
Students participate in movement activities, often using equipment or apparatus to develop a range of skills, both trans-disciplinary and those specific to PE. Students of all abilities are challenged to improve their skills, but they are also supported and encouraged to enjoy physical activity and see it as part of a healthy and active lifestyle with connections to other areas of the curriculum and community.
The PE curriculum consists of a wide array of units of work arranged into the following seven strands:
- Body control and spatial awareness
- Adventure challenge
- Movement to music
- Health related activities
At MIS we aim to create an interest in and enjoyment of physical activity whilst developing individual potential and a life-long healthy lifestyle.
