General Curriculum detail for Key Stage 3

Groups participate in one 100 minute and one 50 minute lesson across a full week. All pupils complete a range of activities where we aim to develop all pupils in order to excel in the following competencies:

  • To be physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Be engaged in competitive all forms of sport and physical activity
  • To lead healthy active lives.

Across the whole of key stage 3 pupils will perform in a broad and balanced curriculum which will be composed of a range of activities suitable to pupils’ motivation, expertise and the facilities we have at Wollaston. Through the activities all pupils will be taught to:

  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games [from the choice of badminton, dodgeball, table tennis basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounder’s, rugby and tennis]
  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports (largely athletics and gymnastics)
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group.

In all activities pupils are taught and expected to analyse their performances and then compare them to previous ones. We aim for all pupils to seek improvement to achieve their personal best in all activities.

Dance is taught through performing arts curriculum rotation but is managed at present range of dance styles and forms through PE. Pupils are taught to perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and forms.

As a Faculty we recognise the importance of the extended day and therefore run clubs afterschool in order to encourage all pupils to take part sports and activities as part of the wider Wollaston School community. We also advertise and link with several local community clubs in order to facilitate our pupils’ participation in these clubs.

2015 has seen the recreation of our highly successful Sport Education program which takes place in the 50 minute lesson for pupils. Sport Ed seeks to educate students to be players in the fullest sense and to help them develop as competent, literate and enthusiastic sports people. The Sport Education program is an opportunity for pupils to run a sports club in a business style environment. Results count on and off of the field and every pupil will all have roles and responsibilities to fulfil. The success of their club relies on all members working together.
