At Elmwood Infant School we aim to develop a child’s knowledge, skill and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities, these activities include dance, athletics, gymnastics and games. A varied curriculum is in place to support this and we make links with other areas of the curriculum such as science, PSHE, music and numeracy.
As a rights respecting school, we also encourage children to recognise their right to the best possible health which includes education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy.
Physical Education promotes an understanding of their bodies in action and along with this we encourage children to think about the ‘Superskills’ they will need to apply during PE lessons such as communication, confidence, collaboration, independence, organisation and perseverance.
