Physical Education (see also Extra–Curricular Activities)
P.E. plays an important role in promoting co–ordinated physical activity as well as healthy lifestyles and consequently P.E. is carefully time–tabled for every class. All the children are taught how to safely use both small and large apparatus. They learn how to work both independently as well as collaboratively with other children. In the Infant department, the children begin to learn about team-work, so that as they progress to the Junior Department, they are ready to play a wide range of team games such as rounders, cricket, netball and football.
From Year 4 the children walk to local playing fields, when the weather permits. Our junior children have timetabled swimming instruction sessions at Harborne Swimming Baths.
Dance in a variety of forms is enjoyed throughout the school and our school performances are well known for featuring an exciting range of both dance and gymnastic routines. Each spring, the infant children take part in traditional may–pole dancing, using the original may–pole from 1902. In the summer we hold a Sports Afternoon at Metchley Lane playing fields - parents are welcome to join us for this.
Many of our extra curricular activities also involve PE and the children can get involved in activities such as gymnastics, dance, football, cricket and netball. Letters are sent home informing you of what is on offer for particular year groups at any particular time.
