Using and applying Mathematics/English within P.E.

Children explore key mathematical concepts through the P.E. curriculum. For example, sequencing and shape is applied through performing dances with a range of patterns; the knowledge and understanding of angles is applied through refining the skill of throwing and hitting a target; and through the recording of scores through tallying, the children apply their knowledge of how averages help to regulate games. English is used throughout the P.E. curriculum as children use their reading skills to understand new vocabulary that is introduced and through the communication skills that are essential when working within a team.
