Children build on their natural enthusiasm for movement, using it to explore and learn about their world. They work and play with other pupils in pairs and groups, learning about rules and fair play. They develop their skills in movement and coordination and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a range of ways. Activities include gymnastics, dance and games. Older children also benefit from our residential trips (2 nights for Year 3 and 4 pupils and 4 nights for Year 5 and 6 pupils). Activities on these trips include rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, body boarding, zip wire and tree climbing.
Every child in school is provided with an hour of specialist coaching every week, throughout the year. They also receive PE teaching from the class teacher each week.
Physical activities offered to the children are wide ranging and include multi-skills, athletics, football, netball, basketball, dance, gymnastics, lacrosse, cricket, rugby, handball, striking and fielding games and invasion games.
After school activities are offered by our specialist coaches and may cover football, netball, multi-skills, multi-sports, rugby, cricket and lacrosse. Matches in various sports are arranged with our cluster of schools and we also take part in a number of festivals at our feeder secondary schools.
