HUNTERS BAR INFANT SCHOOL
All classes in Key Stage One have two timetabled sessions of Physical Education weekly incorporating aspects of gymnastics, games and dance. Our commitment to at least two hours of quality PE weekly has gained the school national recognition in the award of ‘Activemark’ and local recognition in the award of the ‘School Sports Partnership Gold Award.’
The whole school take part in Kixx sessions where they are 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
We also take our Year 2 children swimming for 6 weeks. the children are taught to
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke
Our school takes part in the ‘Daily Mile’ initiative. Each class aims to go outside and run, jog or walk for approximately 15 minutes most days, in addition to their normal PE sessions and playtimes.
Not only is full use made of the hall and outdoor areas around the school building, but children also have opportunities to access Endcliffe Park and the sports facilities of High Storrs School and, on occasion, the Institute of Sport and Don Valley stadiums.
