Physical Education

A long games session and a session in the hall (with gymnastic equipment) are provided. The physical education programme covers two main aspects:

  • learning the body management skills associated with well co-ordinated movement and gymnastics. The gymnastic apparatus in the hall is used and children are encouraged to balance, climb and move with increasing precision.
  • skills for games. Again balance and co-ordination are important but here the use of bats, balls racquets etc. are introduced along with team elements and tactics. Major team games such as football, rugby and netball are catered for in our extra curricular programme, where children compete for places in the team and play in competitions against other schools.
