Physical Education is an integral part of the curriculum at IST.
One of the features of our programme is that all lessons from
Reception Class through to Year 10 are taken by a specialist
physical education teacher.
For a new school our range of facilities is very impressive.
A full size pitch for Football, Baseball and Rugby, two outdoor
Basketball courts and two Tennis courts. Indoors our KS1
students enjoy their own specialised gymnasium and the older
students have their lessons in a multi-purpose hall.
Each sport will be taught for a period of 2 to 3 weeks, so that we
can introduce the children to as many sports as possible. Children will
learn the basic rules of each sport, as well as the basic techniques to
play the game. Emphasis will be put on practice of the different skills
related to the sport taught. We also teach the different strategies and
tactics found in individual and team games.
All new physical challenges - throwing, catching, kicking, etc. are
approached through games. We take into account the child's imagination,
and we allow room for exploration and discovery. The children will be
involved in different activities and exercises that will put them in
situations where they will have to use their physical skills or practise
new ones to resolve problems. Problem solving plays an important part in
the methodology of teaching PE at this level.
