Physical Education

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.

Long Term Plans

The long term plans set out the programmes of study for the whole academic year and enables parents to see the topics being studied term by term.

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11)

In Key Stage 4 all students participate in core Physical Education. They are able to continue developing their communication, problem solving and team work skills in a variety of physical activities. We encourage student’s confidence and independence by giving them more active roles and responsibilities in organising team games. Students are able to build on their key skills learnt in Key Stage 3 and apply more advanced skills, tactics and strategies. We ensure students at Network are fully equipped to participate in sport and physical activity after leaving school and have an understanding of how physical activity can promote overall health and well-being.

Students at Network also have the opportunity to study Cambridge IGCSE Physical Education. Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical aspects of Physical Education and performance in a modern world. Alongside theory, they will be assessed in their application of skills, techniques and strategies in 4 practical performances. 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 

Network is part of a series of friendly inter-school competitions in a variety of sports with other international schools in Yangon, the MISAC league and tournaments. Students have the opportunity to compete in MISAC sports from Year 7 to Year 13. This encourages good relationships with other International schools; supports student interaction with peers in different schools, and involves students in sport at a competitive level.
