PE at Pinewood

Pinewood recognises the vital contribution of physical education to children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development and their overall well-being. Physical education at Pinewood is about teaching the children fundamental movement skills, encompassing both gross and fine motor skills. Children are given opportunities to develop agility, control and manipulation of objects, balance and coordination. They are also taught the skills needed to work as a team. We employ a highly qualified sports coach who delivers excellent PE sessions and works alongside teaching staff to ensure children are achieving their highest possible outcomes. We also employ a qualified dance teacher to work with our children.

Our PE Intent

At Pinewood, we want our children to be fit an healthy and lead active and healthy lives. We want to equip them with a variety of skills and introduce competitive games so that the core PE skills can be built upon in Key Stage 2. We want them to be excited to attend after school PE clubs and to actively participate in all aspects of sport and PE, working co-operatively with others and challenging themselves to improve.

We have an amazing sports coach Ed who teaches every class from F2-Y2. He works 1 day a week in school and the children really look forward to his lessons!
We enjoyed running a mile around school to raise money for Sports Relief!

We are lucky enough to have the life bus into school every year. They teach us how to keep our bodies and minds happy and healthy.

We all learn about healthy eating at Pinewood. Here we are making healthy porridge to fill our tummies!
We keep our bodies fit and healthy at school and we love going on a walk to our local wood, The Hobbucks.
Outdoor learning is of great importance in the EYFS and children have the opportunity to run, throw, catch, build and climb!
