In year 7 the aim is to develop a love of all sports on the curriculum and be able for you to understand where you start from as you start at Mosslands.

You will arrive with different levels of ability and access to PE teaching at Key stage 3.

We aim to baseline assess students in the first half term so you understand your starting points and (more importantly) know how you need to perform to improve your assessment scores in PE as you progress through the year.

You are assessed on skill development, teamwork, tactics, knowledge of active lifestyles and problem solving.

You are given a wide range of activities to try and be told to start thinking what your best 4 activities are if you were to sit a GCSE.

In this year there are also exciting opportunities to trial out for our very successful school and house teams. Students will be given chance to trial for school football, rugby, basketball, cricket, tennis and athletics teams
