PE and Sports at Alverstoke Infant School

Autumn Term 2018-2019

Inter schools competitions

The Autumn term has seen our first competition within our cluster of schools. Held at Alverstoke Infant School, the multi skills festival for Year 1 saw children competing using skills such as balance, bowling, bean bag throwing, running and jumping.  The next one is due at the end of January at Elson Infants where we will have the opportunity to participate in a ‘Spikeball’ competition.

PE lessons

All classes have twice-weekly PE lessons which, last term, included gymnastics, dance, balance bike training, parachute games, multi skills and early years agility. Every class has participated in a daily active session including skipping, the daily run and wake and shake. Watch out in the new year for new playground markings to support physical activity. Year groups have planned active maths sessions where learning has been taken out of the 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 this term she has delivered sessions in Year 2 and Year R. We continue to provide after school sports clubs which include ballet, tennis and football.   Next term we start our spikeball club for Year 2 and this will be delivered by Vanessa King on a Wednesday after school.
