Hello and welcome to The Hythe School's sports page!

The Hythe Community Primary School believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being.

 

  • A broad and balanced physical education curriculum provides for pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.

 

  • Pupil voice plays a key role in the activities experienced within the PE curriculum, promoting a broad base knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide variety of sports and activities.  PE encourages the development of independent life-long learners with children responding appropriately and sympathetically to others, irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.

 

  • The activities offered and the teaching approaches adopted provide pupils with opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities, through improvisation and problem-solving. Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness.

Swimming and Water Safety - Year 6, July 2017

Schools are required to provide swimming and water safety lessons within either Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.  Living where we do, with vast bodies of water around us, we feel that swimming is a vital skill to learn and therefore offer this across all year groups. 

Children meeting National curriculum expectations for swimming and water safety at end of Year 6: 

  • Can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres: 59%
  • Can use a range of strokes effectively, for example front crawl, backstroke and breast stroke: 59%
  • Can perform safe self rescue in different water-based activities: 100%

Swimming - Summer Term 2018

Swimming will start in the Summer term.  Due to living in an area surrounded by water, as we do, the school believes that it is essential to learn this vital life skill, therefore lessons are provided for each year group; these are taught in our on-site pool.  This year we have external swimming instructors teaching each session. They are being supported by Mr Roots, who will either be in the pool or on poolside as lifeguard.  When Mr Roots is supporting in the pool, Mr Carter will be lifeguarding. 

Please find below details of the skills your children will be taught during their swimming sessions this year:

EYFS and Key Stage 1

Throughout Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, pupils will be taught the fundamental skills of pushing and gliding independently on both their front and back. They will be made aware of general poolside etiquette, taught to understand acceptable poolside behaviour and will develop their personal survival skills through the teaching of vital skills such as floating safely. They will also be taught safe ways to enter and exit the pool, including jumping into the pool from the side showing safety and awareness. All ages will be expected to have an understanding of the correct action over a sustained distance (3-5 metres). Year 2 pupils will be expected, by the end of their swimming lessons, to have knowledge related to all 4 basic swimming stokes.

Key Stage 2

Pupils will be expected to have knowledge related to all areas of the EYFS and KS1 targets. All pupils will be expected to swim for a sustained distance independently:

  • Year 3: 15 metres independently.
  • Year 4: 15 – 20 metres independently.
  • Year 5: 20-25 metres independently.
  • Year 6: 25 metres independently.

All pupils will be expected to have a sound knowledge of the recognised strokes, including treading water safely – Years 5 and 6 will also be taught sculling and surface diving.  Various breathing techniques will be taught, varying in complexity between year groups. Pupils will also be taught to maintain a streamlined position during push, glide and rotation phases with Year 6 being taught the basics of tumble-turns.
