Pre Reception PE

The main focus of the lessons for the children is to develop fundamental movement skills including; walking, jumping, hopping, balance etc.  Throughout the lessons the children are encouraged to establish control of their own bodies and gross motor skills.

The children have two twenty minute sessions a week with the specialist PE teacher.  On the other days they have a designated time in the Adventure Playground, with the class teacher and assistant.
