In Early Years, P.E is taught through the prime area of Physical Development which encompasses gross motor skills. We want the children to negotiate space and obstacles safely, demonstrate strength, balance and co-ordination when playing and move energetically such as running, jumping, dancing, hopping, skipping and climbing. Children also develop prerequisite skills for P.E through the prime area of Personal, Social and Emotional Development by Managing Self and Building Relationships. Children will work and play cooperatively and take turns with others as well as manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs, including dressing; explain the reasons for rules, know right from wrong and behave accordingly and be confident to try new activities and show independence, resilience and perseverance in the face of a challenge.
