Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)
In Key Stage 3, students are taught to develop their basketball, football, touch rugby, volleyball, table tennis, athletics, badminton and swimming throughout the year, focusing on two sports per term. In lessons, students initially work to progress the fundamental skills used in the sport, including the rules of the game, both of which they can apply as students pursue their choice of sport in inter school competitions and sports fixtures against other international schools. Fair play and good sportsmanship are installed within our students as we help to develop the all round games player. Our Physical Education lessons also help to promote great social and leadership skills encouraging regular physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11)
In Key Stage 4 all students continue in core Physical Education lessons including the sports mentioned above, developing their communication skills and teamwork to refine their problem solving skills. Students begin analysis and evaluation of their peers and their own performance while looking at ways they can improve. At this stage we look to develop more complex coordination and techniques completing them with accuracy of a high level. We also introduce students to the gym and creating their own training program takes place here. This is to develop their physical fitness in a safe controlled environment that is specific to their sport of choice and promotes health and well-being.
Students at Network also have the opportunity to study Cambridge IGCSE Physical Education program. These students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical aspects of Physical Education and performance in a modern world. Throughout the two years, as well as getting assessed on four practical sports that the students can select, they will gain a sound basis for further study in the field of Physical Education. Areas of study include:
- Anatomy and physiology
- Health, training and fitness
- Skill acquisition and psychology
- Social cultural and ethical influences
Moreover, Network is part of a series of friendly inter-school competitions in a variety of sports with other international schools in Yangon including the MISAC tournaments. This encourages good relationships with other local schools, supports student interaction with peers in different schools, and involves students in sport at a competitive level.
