Physical Education (P.E.)

At PS 452, we use the New York City K-5 Physical Education Scope and Sequence 

From the NYCDOE Office of School Wellness Programs regarding the Scope & Sequence:

This comprehensive curricular planning resource provides a practical framework for implementing comprehensive, skills-based Physical Education instruction. Developed by DOE instructional leaders and teachers and aligned to State and national standards, the Scope and Sequence emphasizes consistent foundational skills and concepts. It is organized into five thematic categories identified and selected by New York City public school teachers:

  • Safety and Management
  • Community Building
  • Locomotor Skills
  • Rhythms and Educational Gymnastics
  • Manipulatives

Key components of this Scope and Sequence include:

  • Thematic overviews
  • Grade-level learning outcomes grids
  • Content is divided into two grade-developmental levels, K-2 and 3-5, to allow for differentiated lesson planning and age-appropriate activity
  • Prioritizes foundational skills and health-related fitness outcomes
