Pupils will build on and embed the physical development and skills they learned in key stages 1 and 2, whilst becoming more competent, confident and expert in their techniques whilst applying them across a number of different sports and physical activities.
Learners will partake in 'blocks' of work where different activities will be studied and students will have the opportunity to use a range of tactics and strategies in order to overcome opponents. In addition to this students will be given the opportunity to develop key techniques in competitive situations, whilst being presented with intellectual and physical challenges. Students will be expected to perform successfully in a team and also have the chance to perform in individual activities. Every student at Budmouth is able to access a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and opportunities.
Typical activities taught at key stage three include; Rugby, Netball, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Health related education, Trampolining or Gymnastics, Climbing, Tennis, Cricket, Rounders and Athletics.
