Key Stage 1 Physical Education

Physical Education and Sport is a fundamental part of a pupil’s life at Mesaieed International School.  We offer a broad range of activities during Curriculum time and extend these in our after school sporting activities programme. Pupils participate in at two PE lesson each week.

The curriculum

At MIS we follow the National Curriculum for England and Wales. The PE curriculum is designed to be fully inclusive and offers a broad range of activities for all pupils to experience. The main purpose is to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. In addition to this we offer opportunities to compete in sport and other activities which aim to build character and help to embed values such as fairness, integrity and respect.


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

·         develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

·         are physically active for sustained periods of time

·         engage in competitive sports and activities

·         lead healthy, active lives.

Subject content

Pupils are taught to develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. We aim to ensure all children are able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils are taught to:

·         master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities

·         participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending

·         perform dances using simple movement patterns.
