PE and Sports Premium
In physical education children take part in a wide variety of activities. They learn that being active is fun and that it is important to lead an active lifestyle. At the beginning of their school life children learn and explore basic movement skills, they develop these skills throughout their time at Yeadon Westfield Infants and leave as a confident mover.
At Foundation Stage and Key Stage one children experience dance, games, multi-skills, athletics and gymnastics. In gymnastics children use the large apparatus which enables them to develop their gross motor skills (climbing, jumping, balance etc). We play a wide variety of team games and during fine weather we take advantage of our school field for outdoor activities of many kinds. Lessons involving the use of small apparatus (bats, balls, skipping ropes etc) develop the children's fine motor skills, such as catching, throwing and hand/eye co-ordination. During the summer the children do athletics on the school field and learn the fundamentals of running, jumping and throwing events. Within Foundation stage they have provision all year round to an outdoor physical area.
