What have we been up to this Summer?

What have we been up to in Spring?
Although we haven't been together long this term, we still managed to fit in plenty of fun during our Sportsweek activities.
Nursery and Reception completed a Nursery Rhyme multi-skill circuit in the hall.
Year 1 and 2 completed an orienteering session in the forest school area.
KS2 used maps to help navigate their way around the orienteering course in the KS2 yard and field. A great way to sneakily get them running for an hour!

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Pupils should be taught to:
master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
perform dances using simple movement patterns.
Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
Pupils should be taught to:

All schools must provide swimming and at Brighton Avenue this is in done in Year 5 within key stage 2.
