jacob DavidPhysical Education at Mayfield
Physical Education (PE) is a highly regarded and integral part of the school curriculum at Mayfield where all children receive the required 2 hours of curriculum PE each week. Due to a variety of sports being offered, a high percentage of children also attend Out of School Hours Learning (OSHL) clubs which increases their participation in sport to 3 hours (or more) each week.

The Curriculum
As the PE curriculum makes a change towards promoting both intra and inter school competition, it brings a change to how the school curriculum is taught, with teachers teaching ‘sports’ at a level 2 competition standard. This will enable whole classes or larger groups of children to participate in these competitions including Tag rugby, Quick Sticks Hockey, High 5s (netball) and many more.

With our curriculum now in place, recommendations have been made for each year group so that sports are not repeated several times and offer the children a broad range of sports. At Mayfield we believe that children should be taught skills that are transferable including passing, throwing, fielding and many more.  Dance and gymnastics units are still expected to be taught but the teachers are now able to be more creative and flexible about the content of the units, linking them to topics in class.

City Youth Games
Every year in June 30 children, from across Year 3 and 4, take part in the Cambridge City Youth Games. This is a day of sport that includes a competition as well as taster sessions in a variety of different sports including Athletics, Goalball and Ultimate Frisbee.

Football
Football is always popular and before the pandemic we had 3 teams competing in inter school matches, – year 5 and 6 boys’ A team, year 5 and 6 boys’ B team and the year 5 and 6 girls’ team.

In recent years we have entered both county and family competitions including the ESFA cup competition, held at Netherhall Secondary School every October and family tournaments held at Chesterton Sports Fields.  The sports coaches also arrange friendly games against other local schools.

Sports day
Every year the school holds an KS1 and KS2 sports day. The KS1 children have a mini-Olympic themed morning that includes running, throwing and jumping events.  In KS2, after the 2012 London Olympic Games we felt as a school we wanted to reflect the legacy in our school sports day, so from 2013, as well as the usual running, throwing and jumping events, we introduced two swimming events.  In honour of the 2014 Tour de France coming through Cambridge in July 2014, it only seemed appropriate to include a cycle race.

Each year we keep our fingers crossed and hope for good weather
