Physical Education

Our aim at Dobcroft Infant School is to provide a high-quality physical education program that ispires all children to enjoy and feel the benefits from being physically active so that they lead healthy and active lives.  We also aim through high-quality teaching to develop children's fundemental skills across a broad range of activities so that children become confident and competent while having access to a broad range of opportunities. 

Within KS1 children will be taught to master the basic skills including those of balance, agility, throwing and catching and skipping.

Within lessons we cover a range of activities, such as dance, gymnastics (both on and off apparatus) and games skills. These skills and co-operative group work come together in small group and team games. All children will experience 2 hours of PE a week.  Y1 and Y2 children experience an additional 30 minutes physical walk/run per day to the above to tie in with the Government movement to encourage children to be more physcially active during the day.

Please look at the information booklet below to find out more about PE at DIS, and how you can get more active at home together.  You will also find attached below our curriculum map for KS1 and our assessment framework.
