Physical development focuses on two key areas:
- Moving and Handling
- Health and self-care
On this page you can see the activities we have been getting up to in school that help us develop our skills in this area.
This half term we will be learning about gymnastics in our PE lessons. We will be concentrating on balancing, climbing, jumping and landing. We will be using new equipment.
Reflection Area - Love
Our reflection area for this half term is love. Over the past weeks we have been creating love cards, cutting out love decorations and using different materials to decorate love hearts. We have been using a number of different tools confidently such as scissors, glue sticks, sellotape, pencils and crayons.
This term in PE we are focusing on dance. We have been thinking of new ways to move our bodies and created dance routines to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and other pieces of music.
Every day in our outside area we have access to plastic crates, tyres and wooden wheels. We like to build dens for houses, jails and caves. Sometimes we bring large cardboard boxes outside to cut and fix together.
In our autumn term PE sessions we focused on throwing bean bags using an under arm throw, learning how to aim for a target and what to change if our target was near or far away.
Making Vegetable Soup
We all brought in vegetables for home to make a soup with. With support from Miss Khan we peeled our vegetables and cut them up. They went into our large pan with some stock and was cooked in Mrs Farley's kitchen. We had some nice warm vegetable soup for snack.
