Pupils at Rothwell Victoria Infant School are encouraged to develop fundamental movement skills, so that they become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. We promote children to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations. Pupils are taught to:
- master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
- participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
- perform dances using simple movement patterns.
The school offers a range of experiences during and after school hours. We take part in an Archery and Multiskills Festival at Montsaye Community College with other schools in the Pathfinder Schools Trust. Children have experienced sessions including cheerleading, dodgeball, hockey, football, basketball, cup stacking, tennis and dance.
We hold a Sports Day every year (weather permitting!) where all children take part in numerous different types of races, we celebrate the participation and the winning!
