At HIXS, our younger children’s experience of Physical Education is centred around movement. We release their physical potential by focusing on different muscle groups, enhancing their balance, coordination, and spatial awareness whilst increasing their endurance, flexibility, and strength. We work on their gross motor skills of throwing, striking, catching, as well as ball control through engaging modified sports and drills. Our Physical Education programme is modelled on the American National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) standards.

With the perfect blend of PE-based multi-disciplinary curriculum (National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE),USA; Cambridge and Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU),UK; we believe in educating students through physical activities on the basis of the following criteria:

01

Participation in physical fitness activities on a regular basis during school as well as beyond

02

Physical demonstration of motor skills and movement patterns

03

Understanding, maintaining and developing fitness concepts, leading to a health enhancing lifestyle

04

What to do, how to do it and when to do it – with increased appreciation of the game and tactical knowledge

05

Encourage enjoyment in physical activity by providing learners with an opportunity to take part in a range of physical activities and develop an understanding of effective and safe physical performance

06

Cognition and understandings about movement concepts, strategies and tactics of the application and learning of these skills

07

Development of responsible personal and social behaviour that respects self and others in physical activity settings

08

Valuing physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction
