Sports activities included

The school’s aim in physical education is to teach essential physical skills and to develop the social, emotional and moral character of the pupils. The pupils learn to share equipment, to play with a partner or small team and to help and co-operate with others. Children are encouraged to give their best, and in this context an element of competition is introduced as pupils grow older. Pupils learn to respect, and work within, the framework of simple rules. Certain fundamental skills are practised across the whole PE curriculum such as locomotion skills and ball skills. The younger children learn to handle equipment which is the basis for specialised games at a later stage. The pupils are taught the skills and subsequently learn to adapt to the rules and limitations presented by the game. Extra football lessons are also offered as extracurricular activity.
