PE is taught twice a week throughout Godley. Each block of PE begins by examining an inspirational sports person or event. A range of skills such as balance, agility and coordination are intertwined throughout PE sessions with the opportunity for children to review and reflect on their work.
Our Year 4 children attend swimming sessions once a week, practising skills to achieve their National Curriculum swimming award. Every child at Godley experiences a half term of dance, taught by a professional dance teacher. These sessions are driven and inspired by the whole school theme and the high quality texts used in each year group.
PSHE and Citizenship
At Godley, we believe PSHE and Citizenship helps to support children's spiritual, moral, emotional and physical development, preparing them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. We promote life-long learning concentrating on children's attitudes and values, personal and social skills as well as knowledge and understanding.
PSHE and Citizenship is taught throughout the year with a key theme each half term, such as 'New beginnings'. Children are encouraged to reflect, express and respond through discussion and debate to challenge questions or current affairs introduced at the beginning of each session. Children learn to empathise,reason and reflect throughout sessions. Organisations such as the NSPCC often come into school to lead assemblies and workshops to support learning in this area.
