Physical Education

 PE includes the teaching of Gymnastics, Dance, Games and Athletics. The children become increasingly skilled and confident in their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They take part in competitive (both against themself and others) and co-operative activities. The children are taught about the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.

At lunchtimes and playtimes the children take part in activities using a variety of equipment and a Play Leader is employed to lead games at lunchtime. As part of the Government’s Sports and PE funding the children are given the opportunity to experience different sports led by experts. In the Summer Term, all our children take part in our Sports Day which is a mixture of competitive races and group sporting experiences.
