PE in EYFS focusses firstly on gross motor skills as pupils learn to move in different directions and at different speeds. This then progresses onto working on good control and coordination in large and small movements. Moving into Key Stages 1 and 2, we focus on teaching children a range of skills and then apply these to a different sports. As many of our pupils do not have chance to access sports clubs outside of school, we plan our curriculum to expose pupils to as many different sports as possible during their time at Oakhill. These include gymnastics, dance, swimming, football, rugby, cricket, golf, netball, basketball and athletics. We explicitly teach the children about the importance of physical exercise and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. Children learn to play cooperatively, taking turns with others and take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity.
We also compete with other schools in the area in local sports tournaments as well as offer internal competitions for our children.
