EY1:The aim of Physical Education at EY1 is to develop the confidence to try new things and take risks, build strength and coordination for gross and fine motor skills, and begin to learn to solve problems.
EY2: During EY2, Physical Education develops the children’s agility, balance and coordination. We are creating awareness of space, themselves and others, and building a familiarity with a variety of small games equipment.
EY3: At EY3, children continue to build awareness of space, themselves and others. They develop a familiarity with various small games equipment and create a range of sending and receiving skills, performing these with control. They also begin to develop spatial awareness through playing, running, chasing and dodging games.
EY4: Physical education at EY4 is taught through specific activities, including team games, athletics and gymnastics. Skills learnt at EY1-3 are now applied to more detailed activities and sports in competitive situations.
