Specialist PE teachers provide a varied programme of games and
gymnastics activities twice a week. The children learn to move
across the floor and simple apparatus with increasing control. They
develop the skills needed for team games and enjoy simple
competitive games in pairs and small groups.
Year 1 children also take part in a dance/drama activity led by
Beech House staff while Year 2 children have a weekly swimming
lesson with members of the P.E. Department. A Swimming Gala is held
in the summer term with activities to suit all levels of
Our Sports Day is a combination of a few competitive events,
some team events and some "just for fun" activities. The children
enjoy traditional races, working together to keep a ball on the
parachute or throwing a foam javelin.
'I love PE because I like balancing on the benches and sliding
down them. I'm very good at throwing and catching a ball now.'
