P E Curriculum
Physical Education children take part in a wide range of both indoor and outdoor activities. Through these activities children are able to develop their fundamental movement skills, such as agility, balance and co-ordination, but they also have the opportunity to improve their personal, social and emotional development and learn about good sportsmanship. At Guiseley Primary School, children learn that being active is fun and that it is important to take part in an active lifestyle.
Children take part in 2 hours of PE every week which take place both indoors, in our school hall, as well as outdoors on the playground and field. Years 4 and 5 also take part in weekly swimming lessons which are held at Aireborough Leisure Centre, where the programme includes water confidence, safety and stroke technique.

We ask that children have a PE kit of close fitting black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps for indoor PE. For outdoor PE, we ask that children have black jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, trainers and a school hoodie. PE t-shirts with the school logo on are available from the school office. For safety reasons we would ask that children do not wear jewellery in school, including pierced, hooped/dangling earrings, and that long hair is tied back.

Miss Adair and Mr Ljustina are the P.E. and Sports leaders throughout school with Mrs Schack co-ordinating the majority of extra-curricular sports activities.
Year 4 take part in outdoor learning each year at Otley Chevin. They have great fun working as a team to make shelters, strip wood and light fires. It is important that their shelters are waterproof and stable! These sessions are organised by Leeds Metropolitan students, who are interested in teaching and outdoor learning.
Year Group Competitions....
Each year group compete against each other at the end of every term, thinking about the skills they have worked on and developed since the beginning of the term. It is always competitive and great fun!! Most weeks, the children have competition built into their PE lessons either to encourage self-improvement or to compete for their school house: Nethermoor, Nunroyd, Parkinson or Springfield!
