Reception children have a short timetabled session for PE in addition to the physical activity they will access throughout their day within the learning environment. These sessions will take place on a Friday morning in the hall. PE sessions will include learning sports skills, playing games, dance and gymnastics. The lessons will link closely to the children's learning in other areas of the curriculum. Children will use both indoor and outdoor provision for their sessions. Getting changed into PE kit for these sessions is a key part of their physical and social development promoting independence. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit that is easy for them to change into and out of on their own, please label your child's PE kit as there are lots of children getting changed at the same time and clothes will get mixed up!
Please ensure children do not wear jewellery including earrings on this day for reasons of health and safety. They will also need to have appropriate kit and long hair should be tied back.
