Powerful P.E


At Whitestone we encourage all our children to be active and have positive attitudes towards physical activity. We enjoy PE Lessons and sport both within the curriculum and during before and after school clubs and lunchtime activities.

 Our PE and school sports promote teamwork, fair play and health and fitness in a fun and safe environment, where all children are challenged and motivated to enjoy and achieve.

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide high quality physical education and school sport through personal challenge and competition that will lead to life long participation and enjoyment. At Whitestone we recognise the importance that PE plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in PE. 

PE at Whitestone provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including invasion games, net and wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics and dance.


The PE curriculum is taught through the PE Hub which ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. In addition the children are encouraged to participate in the range of extra-curricular activities and after school sport clubs.

PE in the Early Years

In Early Years our curriculum focuses on children's physical development, teaching and developing the fundamentals skills of movement, balance, coordination ,flexibility and agility. All children take part in our daily welly walk around the field, increasing the distance during the year. We are aiming for a mile. In the EYFS the children spend part of every day outside in the outside classroom and on tyres and play equipment developing their physical skills. Our skipping workshop is always very popular, and during lunchtimes and playtimes the children work towards skipping certificates.


'I really liked the team games with Kelly. We have done the egg and spoon race, I like that because it is fun and we practiced for sports day. When we did dance, we went across to the music left and right and she taught us different moves and cool dancing. I like PE because we learn about it's so fun!' Emily, Reception.


'Everything is the best in PE. I like doing running races. I learnt how to do races, you run as fast as fast as you can and can use your arms to help you go faster.' Lucas, Reception.


' I like welly walks. We have started to run on the welly walk to keep us healthy and fit. I can run really fast around the field twice!' Emily, Reception.

PE in Key Stage 1

In KS1 the children will further develop these fundamental skills and begin to apply them in a range of sporting activities. They have opportunities to perform individually and with others and they are encouraged to take part in competitions and physical challenges.


'I like it in the Summer when we do running and jogging. The teacher showed us how to run properly and we copied them. I'm a really good runner now.' Meli, Year 1.

Powerful Lunchtime Provision

In order for children to be physically  active for 60 minutes a day, we have adopted an active approach to our lunchtimes. Children have lots of exciting activities on offer such as welly walks, skipping, trim trail exploration, parachute games, and sports coach adult-led activities. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their lunchtimes and we have noticed an improvement in their fitness and behaviour! We have also trained some of the Year 2 children to be fantastic playground leaders. They enjoy leading fun lunchtime games and promoting safe play.


'I like the hopscotch on the big playground and the obstacle course. I'm good at lumping over the trees.' Cian, Reception.


'I like helping people at lunch. You have to help people to play safe and help when people get hurt. In our training, we learnt how to teach safe games and we invented the games ourselves!' Finley, Playground Leader.


'We can skip, I have been doing it with the other children and they help me. Once we had a skipping competition to see who's a good skipper and I won! I won a big long skipping rope!' Lola, Reception.


'Children are loving their active lunchtimes, especially when the parachute is out. They are all always very busy and are really enjoying the rotation of activities. I really enjoy our time during the welly walk as it has been lovely to have some time to talk to the children about their day and to have fun whilst staying fit.' Mrs Turner, Midday Supervisor.


'We have noticed lots of positive behaviour since offering the different activities at lunchtime. Lunchtime has a great structure and all children know the expectations and routines during lunchtime. They show great intrinsic motivation to do well and strive to do better when beating personal best scores during skipping. They have responded well to initiatives such as the skipping and running competitions and are very proud when they achieve the goal and receive a celebratory certificate.' Mrs Jones, Midday Supervisor.

After School Clubs and Competitions

Opportunities are regularly provided for children to compete with children from other schools, e.g athletics tournaments, football festivals and archery tournaments. 

We have a range of after school clubs available for all children, such as rugby, football, multi-sports and gymnastics.


'I like football club because we have learnt lots of cool skills like kicking far.' Noah, Year 1.


'I like scoring goals, we have learnt lots of football skills. I'm really good at step-overs!' Lincoln, Year 1.


'We do dance moves in dance club, I love the superhero dance!' Corey, Year 2


'I like playing matches and I have even learnt 3 tricks such as window screen, cross over and lay up.' Joseph, Year 2.
