Our P.E Vision
Every child enjoys a healthy, active lifestyle achieving their physical potential through lifelong learning.
Here at Redhill we aim for every child to leave with the skills and understanding to live a healthy and active lifestyle. We partner P.E with after school clubs and healthy lifestyle teaching to give children a well-rounded understanding of what it is to be healthy and active.
All children at Redhill take part in P.E every week. We teach P.E around three main areas: Gym, Dance and Games. In these areas children are exposed to a range of different sports, both competitive and non-competitive. We aim to develop transferable skills and sportsmanship through skills-based lessons, leading into sports in KS2.
To promote active lifestyles, we currently employ lunchtime Sport’s Coaches, who set up sporting games and activities at lunchtime. These activities vary from netball to cricket and skipping to dance. They aim to keep children active throughout lunchtime, burning energy and preparing children for their afternoon learning.
After School Clubs
At Redhill, we run a variety of after-school clubs catering for children of all abilities and needs. This year we are running clubs such as football, tag rugby, netball, table tennis, forest adventurers, Change 4 Life, fencing and boxing. Not all of these clubs are competitive as we hope to give all children the opportunity to take part in physical activity after school.
Through these clubs, we aim to give children the chance to experience a range of sports of which they may want to pursue outside of school.
Each year children take part in a range of competitions to apply their skills and sportsmanship in competitive situations. This year we have entered competitions such as cross country, tag rugby, football, cricket and hockey.
We are extremely pleased with our success in our Trust Tag Rugby competition, where Team A achieved 3rd place and Team B achieved 2nd place.
Well done Teams!
‘Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A quality
music education engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. ‘
Redhill is known for its end of year Leavers’ Productions which is the highlight of the Summer Term.
Our children also perform at local events such as Hednesford Lights Switch On.
What are the aims of Religious Education?
RE aims to give children the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and open-minded and respectful attitude with which to investigate the world of religion and beliefs (theirs and others’), and make their own decisions about what this means to them, whilst empathising with what it means to those who hold those beliefs. It also aims to enable children to grow spiritually by developing their awareness and skills of reflection, their experience of awe and wonder and their appreciation of stillness and silence.
Redhill introduced this new Religious Education Scheme in January 2016.
The enquiry based approach makes RE exciting and engaging for both teachers and children alike. Christianity is taught in every year group, with Christmas and Easter given new treatment each year, developing children’s learning in a progressive way. Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism are given 2 or 3 enquiries in a given year group but there is flexibility as to which religions the school chooses to teach when.
Redhill has its very own specialist French Teacher – Madame Veronique LeBourg.
Each class in Key Stage 2 has a specific lesson each week & children in Year 2 have access to a French Club at lunch time.
Children enjoy a very practical approach to learning with an enthusiastic French speaking teacher and appropriately resourced lessons.
