PE and Sport at P.V – Spring term – January - March 2021
(Once again we were plunged into lockdown and schools were closed to all children except essential workers and children with specified needs!)
Children in school were educated in class bubbles and the children at home were following Prospect Vale’s home learning programme of work. We continued to encourage as much Physical Activity as possible providing opportunities for our children attending school daily and also for our children who were not in school. For the children attending school, they were offered opportunities daily to use the outside space in their bubbles with some equipment, observing social distancing and guidelines to remain safe in the current climate. Weekly challenges were being sent home and put on the school website and children were encouraged to share the activities they had done with me via their class home learning email.
When all the children returned, the focus remained on allowing as much time as possible for the children to get outside and be physically active. PE lessons resumed fully (outside) Mrs O’Hare continued to come into school on a Wednesday and our Sports Coach Andrew is in school every lunchtime.
Here’s a brief story of some of the PE and sport that has been happening across school…..
In Nursery and Reception the Focus always remains on basic fundamental skills. The children time to progress their gross motor skills with lots of music and movement, climbing, balancing and outdoor play.
Fundamental skills - locomotor and non-locomotor skills — rolling, balancing, sliding, jogging, running, leaping, jumping, hopping, dodging, galloping and skipping.
Object control skills — bouncing, throwing, catching, kicking, striking.
