Our aim in Physical Education (PE) is to introduce students to a wide variety of sports and activities with the hope that they leave The British School of Nanjing (BSN) recognising the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle after developing a love for physical activity. Throughout the year, sports competitions and inter-house tournaments help develop key skills such as communication, leadership and teamwork.
Children have the chance to develop further through extracurricular activities and are encouraged to join clubs outside of school. At BSN, we realise the huge impact that physical education can play in a child’s life and we relish the chance to inspire and motivate children throughout the school.
In Early Years, physical activity plays a vital part in the development of a child. The children focus on developing basic movement skills with participation and enjoyment being key. The children are taught the basics of movement using a variety of skills through fun, inclusive and active games.
The emphasis is placed on the ABCs (Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed) as children progress through to Junior School. Children are exposed to a huge variety of sporting activities, which help them to develop an array of different skills with fitness for life being a focus in every topic. In Senior School, children continue to develop their sporting talents and take part in a wide number of sports
We believe that every student has the ability to achieve and can find an activity which they enjoy. We are fully focused on making sure that all students enjoy physical education and value the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle.
