All classes engage in at least two hours of P.E. each week; one hour of outdoor games and one hour of indoor gymnastics or dance.
Games sessions early on involve travelling, sending and receiving a ball or other equipment, followed by simple tactics for attacking and defending in a range of net, striking/fielding and invasion type games.
Gymnastics and dance focus on developing children's awareness and understanding of the movements of the body; developing physical skill and confidence in movement and building stamina and mobility. Gymnastics offers a mixture of floorwork and apparatus and the children are encouraged to be independent and co-operative. All P.E. activity develops the children’s understanding of how their bodies work and the importance of a healthy lifestyle, where exercise is regularly taken. The delivery of our P.E. Curriculum is enhanced and supported by Aspire Coaching and a specialist PE teacher who works across a cluster of schools in the Alton area. The school offers a wide range of sports clubs, both during the lunch hour and after school, for children across all key stages. In Year 4 children go swimming to enable them to swim 25 meters with confidence.
