PE

Our vision for PE is to provide high quality and engaging PE lessons and extra-curricular activities that promote an active and healthy lifestyle so all children can achieve their full potential.

 

“Raising aspirations” and aspects of the UNCRC are embedded into all elements of school life and learning at Minet Infant and Nursery School including in the PE curriculum. We are committed to promoting the value and importance of physical activity within the curriculum as we recognise that sports can bring new possibilities and opportunities for each child. In order to achieve this, we believe it is important to provide a progressive PE curriculum that is relevant, inclusive and engaging so children can achieve their full potential throughout their learning life and later lead a healthy and active lifestyle. We provide high quality and inclusive PE lessons to all pupils and a range of extra-curricular clubs to ensure children are provided with a variety of opportunities.

 

We believe that physical activity not only promotes correct physical growth and development but is also transferrable to the classroom by improving concentration and reducing stress. PE will develop children’s gross and fine motor skills and their confidence which are directly linked to academic learning and children’s lives’. The PE curriculum will aid cognitive development and develop a range of key skills. These skills include communication, decision making, leadership and teamwork. They are developed within a range of game scenarios to enable children to apply those skills to other aspects of their lives.

 

Children will have the basic understanding and skills to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. They will develop their fundamental movement skills in a sequential way enabling them play competitive sports in the next stage of their education. We want to provide fun, enjoyable physical experiences so children can engage and succeed in personal challenge. Children will have opportunities to enter a wide variety of inter-school tournaments and festivals and have their efforts celebrated.

 

The PE aims are for children to:

  • develop their physical literacy
  • develop their gross and fine motor skills
  • lead an active and healthy lifestyle
  • develop key skills that are transferrable to the classroom and their life
  • engage in personal challenge

 

These PE aims encourage children to be resilient, responsible and respect each other, which are the values that Minet Infant and Nursery want to instil in the pupils. We want children to be resilient learners, respect teammates and to become responsible for their own fitness and lifestyle.

PE at Minet 2022-2023

At Minet Infant and Nursery, PE is highly valued. We take every opportunity to develop children's talents, abilities, physical development and confidence with movement. Children enjoy their PE lessons and this is what they have to say:

 

'PE is fun because we get to use lots of equipment' (Year 1 child)

 

'I like PE because sometimes it's hard and scary but my teacher always helps me' (Year 2 child)

 

Have a look at some pictures of children's PE lessons.
