Physical development is one of the seven areas of the early years foundation stage curriculum and is used to develop a child's movement, handling of objects, understanding of their own body and health and levels of self-care. Children do this in range of ways including spacial awareness when moving, co-ordination of small and large movements, how to effectively use tools and equipment, saying when they do or don't need help, how show their feelings, learn that some behaviour is unacceptable and its consequences, how to play co-operatively and form positive relationships with adults and children. 

The students in our Early Years Foundation stage take part in weekly PE lessons taught by our PE specialist as they develop their gross motor skills alongside other activities set up by their class teachers in their classes focusing on developing the students’ physical abilities. During their PE lessons the students participate in activities requiring hand-eye coordination. They learn to move freely and with confidence in a range of ways and to run skilfully and negotiates space successfully, adjusting speed or direction to avoid obstacles as well as negotiate space successfully when playing racing and chasing games. They develop increasing control over objects by pushing, patting, throwing, catching, or kicking it. They travel with confidence and skill around, under, over and through balancing and climbing equipment.  On Friday 23rd April, the students took part in our annual Early Years Sports Day. There were 5 different activities to allow students to put into practise a range of skills that are taught in PE lessons, such as zigzag running, tunnels, balancing steppers, basketball shooting, transport tires and hurdle relay race.  All our students wore their house t-shirts and worked so well as a team. There was lots of running, jumping, throwing and laughing! Thank you, parents, for coming to cheer for your children. At the end of the sports day, all the students were rewarded with a certificate. Well done everyone!
