PE at Luston and Shobdon

PE Leads: Aaron Nicholls 

 Good physical and mental health is one of our key curriculum drivers.

PE in the Federation aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary to support the mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing of our children now and in their future. We aim to instil a lifelong interest in sport, active lifestyles and physical and mental well-being.

Our intent is to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities and become physically confident. To learn self-discipline, respect, teamwork and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

In addition, children learn the importance and value of cooperating and collaborating with others, as part of a team, and an understanding of fairness and equity of play. We develop young leaders who are able to organise and officiate a range sporting activities.

We aim to ensure our children can swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and know how to remain safe in and around water.

Fun PE activities to try at home

Let's go the the Dough Disco!
'Dough Disco' is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control.
The movements help develop children's fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem.
Have fun at the Dough Disco!

Cosmic Kids Yoga


Every week, millions of kids do our yoga and mindfulness sessions on video in class and at home. And thousands of teachers that we've trained lead classes in their own communities. We're doing what we can to make yoga and mindfulness fun for kids - so that children can enjoy the physical, mental and emotional benefits of yoga.


Enjoy a spot of yoga!
