PE in EYFs and KS1

All of our infant classes are enjoying Yoga Bugs.

 We stretch and curl to develop our flexibility.

We develop  our balance and co-ordination.


Gymnastics helps us to stretch and curl to develop flexibility. We can hold our positions whilst balancing on different points of the body. We learn to show contrasts (such as small/tall, straight/curved and wide/narrow).


PE in KS2


 Year 3 and 4    
We have been learning to plan, perform and repeat sequences and move in a clear, fluent and expressive manner.  In our sequences, we have been learning to show changes of direction, speed and level during a performance.
Year 5 and 6
We have been creating sequences that include travelling and balances.  We have been creating sequences that include rotations, stretching and flight. We have been learning to create sequences using the equipment that include flight.


 In this task, the children needed to embrace leadership and team roles. They needed to offer and seek support and remain positive in challenging circumstances!

Fitness, health and Personal Best



We have been retelling the story of Rama and Sita through movement. We created our own sequences and performed expressively.
