At Radcliffe on Trent Infant and Nursery School we aim to promote and provide all our pupils with the opportunity to enhance their sporting experiences though an enriched PE curriculum and through extra-curricular clubs and activities.
Each child receives at least 1 hour of structured physical activity per week with our PE specialist.
The children cover a wide range of activities in their PE lessons and have the opportunity to develop their skills further in extra-curricular clubs and inter-school competitions.
The children begin by following a series of fundamental movement skills in their PE lessons which are designed to develop their core motor skills through a series of developmental activities.
These activities include the following:
These skills, once developed are then transferred in to more specific activities related to game play and different game categories including striking and fielding, invasion, net and wall. Focus areas include:
The activities become more challenging as the children progress up through the year groups and the small sided games move on to more recognised versions of traditional games including, hockey, rugby, rounders, cricket and tennis.
The children also take part in athletic activities including indoor athletics in the winter months and outdoor athletics in the summer term. They develop their competencies in throwing, running and jumping.
