PE and Sports at Alverstoke Infant School

Alverstoke Infant School play an active role in our cluster of schools. All year groups attend festivals, which have included multi skills (using skills, such as balance, bowling, bean bag throwing, running and jumping), tennis, spikeball and gymnastics. The children have represented the school well demonstrating their teamwork, resilience and motivation to demonstrate their competitive spirit and skills gained within school.

On a day to day basis, children engage and progress in twice-weekly PE lessons, as well as remaining active throughout the day. We promote active lifestyles by offering our children wake and shake sessions, daily run and active lunchtimes. We are proud of how our children really challenge themselves to improve their fitness through the daily run on our playground track and markings which support physical activity. Year groups have planned active mathematics sessions where learning has been taken out of hte classroom and delivered in a more active way.

Our PE curriculum is supported by Vanessa King, who is our highly skilled PE specialist teacher and she delivers sessions on a termly basis with each year group.

Our annual sports day proves to be as popular as ever with children participating in team challenges. The theme for June 2019 was “Women’s Football World Cup” and saw countries competing to gain points and earn a medal. We also ran the finals of the running races following the heats within the previous week. Another hot one but a great turn out to support the children.

A good attendance to all our extra curriculum sports club with two sessions of football, tennis, and ballet with external coaches and spikeball and fun club with Vanessa King. We continue to run these clubs and hope to include a gymnastics club.
