Our PE day this half term will be FRIDAY. During this lesson the children will focus on particular skills and aspects of PE. However the children have access to physical development opportunities every day both inside and outside of the classroom. Physical development in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) is a prime area of development. Part of this includes developing children’s knowledge and skills in taking responsibility for their own health and self –care. The EYFS states that ‘children manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully including dressing and going to the toilet independently’. In order to help the children achieve the Early Learning Goal in health and self-care please ensure that the children are dressing themselves as much as possible at home.
This half term, we will continue to focus on the key areas of agility, balance and co-ordination through whole class warm ups, individual and paired work and whole class games. We will begin to learn the key skills as the basis for sports such as football and basketball. We will also play parachute games to develop teamwork and of course have lots of fun! Time allowing, we'll fit in some dance and yoga too!
