Physical Education at SACGS

An emphasis on enjoyment and maximum participation! 

Teaching of games is carried out using a variety of individual, small group and larger game practices. Students are encouraged to learn new skills and develop their use ultimately to try and outwit an opponent. Physical education explores the physical and mental benefits of exercise through a variety of activities. Emphasis on all teaching is to ensure all students gain maximum practice time through small group work which helps develop confidence and enjoyment in the subject in all activities and all weathers.

What happens at Key Stage 3?

You will study a different unit every half-term from the Games and Physical Education programme. Much of the early work in a unit will focus on skill repetition and development of core skills. This will progress to the introduction of opponents in a small game situation to encourage maximum involvement.
