Physical Education - Year 3

Y3 / Lower KS 2 Topics - Click on quick links below.

The subject of P.E is considered a foundation subject. This means that parents and teachers are given four years to cover it as they see fit. The core subjects: Maths, Science and to a lesser extent English, are given individual guidance for each year. Below you will find all of our topics covering Physical Education within our Year 3 activities.

All of our year groups cover the complete curriculum with the exception of Maths, English, Computing and Language. Currently, Maths and English are being developed through new activities as well as integrated into existing ones.
