Our PE programme will this term involve fundamentals of movement and multi-skills, and we will be focusing on developing skills including Agility Balance, Coordination (inclusion, character, resilience, caring, leadership etc)
As part of our PE programme we will be incorporating thinking skills and social & emotional skills into our lessons, to ensure children are developing key life skills to support them through all aspects of life. This will be particularly crucial as children adapt to a new school environment, and additional time will be spent engaging these skills during each lesson.
A strict cleaning policy on all equipment will be in place, with equipment cleaned thoroughly between every lesson and each class having their own.
