Physical education (PE) at Eastburn:
-develops an understanding of how physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle and the positive effect it can have on our mental health and well-being.
-poses challenges, making us realise what our minds and bodies can achieve.
-makes us feel happier, improves our well-being and keeps our bodies healthy.
We cover a range of sports through our skills-based curriculum and children have the opportunity to push themselves towards individual goals whilst also broadening their cooperative and collaborative skills during team sports and activities. We are progressive in our approach and children have the chance to build on previously learnt skills each year.
Our curriculum covers:
Outdoor Adventurous Activities
Net and Wall skills
Striking and fielding skills
Fundamental movement skills
Swimming (Year 4)
