Nursery and Reception (EYFS)
Two PE Lessons a week
Not only do Nursery and Reception have two Physical Education lessons a week with our trained PE staff, but Nursery and Reception children have a weekly Yoga session. This helps the children to learn how to control and balance by using their parts of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga strengthens physical development even for very young children. At this stage they are learning how to balance, whether lying down or bending, standing and balancing. These lessons take place either in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) building or in the playground.
The PE curriculum follows the Early Years Framework and the skills taught aim to support the children’s development of their fundamental movement skills.
In the summer, Nursery and Reception will take part in a Sports Morning that showcases the skills that they have learnt in PE throughout the year.
