At Caistor Yarborough Academy we aim to physically educate students; teaching and improving skills to enable them to maintain involvement and enjoyment within sport throughout their lives. To do this we teach a variety of sports that develop physical and motor skills including, Basketball, Badminton, Netball, Fitness, Football, Rugby, Rounders, Gymnastics, Tennis and Athletics. We are lucky to have a sports hall with a full size Basketball court and 4 Badminton Courts, a Fitness room, School hall with fully equipped gymnasium, 5 outdoor tennis courts, Football and Rugby Pitches. KS3 have 2 lessons per week in 1 hour slots and KS4 have one lesson with the added choice of taking BTEC sport which increases their PE time to 4 Hours a week.
Key Stage 3
In Key stage 3 we focus on developing and applying of skills from a practice into a game. There are fundamental movement skills which get taught throughout all sports, which include throwing, catching, running and co-ordination. We then progress onto sport specific skills and rules to improve knowledge of sports and how to perform them.
We work to ensure all students improve and are given the opportunity to push themselves further through attending lunchtime practices and afterschool fixtures.
