We want the children at Mauldeth Road to be fit and healthy. PE is timetabled three times a week.
Through PE children develop their skills and confidence in body control and expressive movement. They also play a range of team games where they learn the importance of communicating effectively and co-operatively with each other.
We aim to teach the children the skills involved in co-ordinating and using their bodies by providing them with a wide range of lessons which include:
- Gymnastics, using apparatus
- Movement Dance and Drama
- Outdoor Games
- Athletics and Outdoor Pursuits
- Swimming Lessons (provided for Year 4 children)
Each and every child in the school takes part in this vital area of the curriculum. As in every other area, the individual development needs of each child are taken into account.
Your support is vital. Please make quite sure that your child always brings a PE kit into school each Monday and takes it home each Friday. It wastes so much of the other children’s time if the Class Teacher has to find a spare kit.
