Sports and Adventure
At Eden Park we endeavour to provide a broad and exciting range of activities in Physical Education to appeal to all our children. Throughout the school children follow a whole school approach learning sports together at an age appropriate level. These themes often result in tournaments and festivals which parents can support, ensuring our children benefit from competitive sport.
In the Foundation Stage, physical development is one of the prime areas of learning. To provide regular opportunities in this area, we have adopted the Leap into Life programme as well as longer PE sessions to further promote gross motor skills.
In Key Stage 1 we continue with Leap into Life and enhance this with activities to encourage co-ordination, team work and independence. By Key Stage 2 we still offer the opportunity for every child to participate in a wide range of sports but at a more complex level.
The school employs a specialist PE support assistant to guide children in tecniques for all PE sessions across the whole age range.
There are frequent opportunities for children to participate in cross school competitions, matches and festivals both as classes and sometimes as selected teams.
