Physical education in the foundation stage is based on the Physical Development of the Early Learning Goals. Children develop an understanding of how their bodies work, their physical control, co-ordination and the ability to move in many different ways, as well as developing their small and large motor skills.
Key Stage 1
In Key stage 1, children build on their natural enthusiasm for movement, using it to explore and learn about their surroundings. They enjoy developing their teamwork by playing and working with other children, both in pairs and small groups. By watching, listening and experimenting with movement and ideas, they develop their skills in movement and their co-ordination, and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of sports situations.
Key stage 2
In Key stage 2, children enjoy being active and using their creativity and imagination in physical education. They learn new skills, find out how to use them in different ways, and link them to make actions, phrases and sequences of movement. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise theirs and others’ success as well as suggesting ways for improvement.
We provide children with opportunities to participate in competitive sport (football, basketball and athletics) against other International schools in Kampala. We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities (Tuesday – Thursday), in which all children take part as well as team training sessions on Mondays and Fridays.
