Marsh Lane Primary School - Physical Education

Physical education (PE) at Eastburn: 

-develops an understanding of how physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle and the positive effect it can have on our mental health and well-being.

-poses challenges, making us realise what our minds and bodies can achieve.

-makes us feel happier, improves our well-being and keeps our bodies healthy.



We cover a range of sports through our skills-based curriculum and children have the opportunity to push themselves towards individual goals whilst also broadening their cooperative and collaborative skills during team sports and activities. We are progressive in our approach and children have the chance to build on previously learnt skills each year.

Our curriculum covers:



Outdoor Adventurous Activities

Net and Wall skills

Striking and fielding skills

Invasion games



Fundamental movement skills

Swimming (Year 4)

We recently took part in the ‘Sustrans’ Big Walk and Wheel, from the

11th – 22nd March.

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improve air quality in their neighbourhood and discover how these changes benefit their world.

We made an impressive 855 active journeys in the 2 weeks! 

Here are some of the badges we achieved:


We also came 24th in the region!

But more importantly, it encouraged our children to think about lifestyle choices they make and can control – it was great to see some of our pupils switching up their normal journey to school and either walking or wheeling instead!

Great effort team Eastburn!
