PE and Outdoor Play

We love being outside whatever the weather. We have lots of outdoor opportunities and love to explore our outdoor environment. We have a fantastic woodland area which we visit on a weekly basis. Due to the nature of outdoor play there may be times when the children need a change of clothes so we please ask parents to put a spare set of clothes on their pegs. We have sets of waterproof suits, coats and trousers, spare wellies and sun hats for the children to use although we do ask for children to come to school with the appropriate outdoor clothing for the weather.

We have a formal PE session on a Monday afternoon where we visit the hall or head outside to do a wide variety of activities. We do PE with the Nursery children and split into two groups. The group remaining in the classroom have the opportunity to do Yoga or engage in outdoor activities making our Monday all about physical activity and movement. Each term we have a different focus in our PE sessions:

Autumn 1 Games and Keeping Space 
Autumn 2 Dance and Movement (including Clubbercise)
Spring 1 Gymnastics
Spring 2 Ball Games
Summer 1 Tag Rugby
Summer 2 Athletics
