Early Years Foundation Stage
The Foundation Stage curriculum places high importance on the development of children’s physical skills. The Foundation stage profile has divided Physical Development into two areas: ‘Gross Motor Skills’ and ‘Fine Motor Skills.'
As a school we strive to support this development through our excellent outdoor provision in Foundation Stage and by providing a range of targeted opportunities for children to develop their fine motor skills.
Key Stage One
At Field End Infants, we ensure the full National Curriculum Programme of Study is delivered to a high standard.
The National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives
Teachers work in partnership with coaches from Nursery to Year Two, ensuring that lessons are engaging, motivating and challenging and that all children access enrichment opportunities in PE.
