How is Physical Education taught at BSM?

Physical Education is taught in line with the British National Curriculum through a broad and balanced curriculum intended to increase pupils' self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.

Progressive learning objectives and learning outcomes, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, endeavour to provide stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils.

The curriculum is made up of a balance of individual, paired and group activities; co-operative, collaborative and competitive situations aims designed to cater for the preferences, strengths and needs of every pupil. Such activities, experienced within a range of areas of activity, aim to promote a broad base of movement knowledge, skills and understanding. They are also desirous of developing a pupil's ability to work independently and to respond appropriately and sympathetically to others, irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.

The activities offered and the teaching approaches adopted, seek to 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.

 
 

Enrichment

The school offers a wide range of after school activities to the children and these form part of the whole school Enrichment programme. These are open to any pupil in the relevant year group.

Activities are divided into 2 categories: competitive and recreational. Competitive activities are geared towards preparing teams for both local and international tournaments. We participate in the Muscat Primary Sports League which offers competitions at both U9 and U11 age groups. Internationally, we are established participates in the annual U11 British School in the Middle East (BSME) Primary Games and our children in Years 5 & 6 get the opportunity to take part in these games which are hosted in different locations around the Middle East every year.

In additional to these 'competitive' activities there are several 'recreational' activities. Children are encouraged to take part in these in a less competitive environment. These clubs are especially important for children playing a sport for the first time or where Muscat possibly lacks competitive opportunities that are perhaps available if/when these children move on to other parts of the world.
