During Key Stage 1 pupils build on their natural enthusiasm for movement, using it to explore and learn about their world. They start to work and play with other pupils in pairs and small groups. By watching, listening and experimenting, they develop their skills in movement and coordination, and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations.
At Manor Leas Infant School we aim to provide children with a range of activities within their PE lessons, covering dance, gymnastics and games. We give children opportunities to develop fundamental movement skills in a range of different situations, both individually and working against others in fun, competitive and non-competitive ways.
When teaching PE we aim to ensure children become confident in:
Acquiring and developing skills
Selecting and applying skills
Evaluating and improving performance
Developing a greater knowledge and understanding of fitness and health
Our curriculum includes:
Outdoor/garden school activities
Adventurous activities, such as clip and climb
Mindfulness, including mediation and yoga
The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. At Manor Leas Infant School, we have chosen to invest a big amount of money on a specialist coach who will deliver high quality sports sessions to every child in the school for one of their PE lessons every week. The programme also extends to our staff team who will be improving their subject knowledge and practice, while team teaching with a specialist teacher.
