The Physical Education Curriculum provides all of our children with continuous opportunities to improve and develop their personal skills and performance across a wide range of sports and activities. Our curriculum is supported by many further opportunities, to extend and participate in a wide range of sporting activities through the many ECAs offered, inter-class competitions and competition and festivals with other schools within Bangkok and further afield around South-East Asia.
The Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 (Nursery to Year 2) curriculum focuses on the introduction and development of many new skills and understanding in dance, gymnastics, swimming, ball skills and basic games play situations. The highlights of their sporting calendar are their much anticipated Sports Mornings and Swimming Galas when the children take part in multiple individual and team events in an atmosphere of participation and friendly competition with their peers.
The Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6) curriculum is challenging and diverse including teaching units in swimming, basketball, football, athletics, tee ball, short tennis, volleyball, touch rugby, outdoor and adventures activities, dance and gymnastics. Our students all take part in the annual Swimming Galas and Sports Days as well as Inter-Class Tournaments at the end of each of their basketball, tee ball and football curriculum units. Other sporting events on offer include the Aquathlon in Term 1 where children time each other for a run and swim fitness challenge. In Term 2 those students who enjoy athletics can also attend our Saturday Record Breakers meet where they can challenge their personal best performances and school records in a wide range of running, jumping and throwing events.
Our students have a tremendous number of opportunities within their Physical Education lessons and in the extra curricular arena here at Bangkok Patana to participate and excel in a wide variety of activities. They certainly take full advantage of those opportunities and reward the dedication of our excellent P.E. teachers and coaches with consistently high quality performances. It is hoped that all children will have enjoyed their Physical Education experiences with us and are motivated and prepared to be “fit for life” even when Bangkok Patana Shcool is only a fond memory.
