Hexham First School

P.E.

During P.E. lessons we aim to improve the key skills of co-ordination, control, manipulation and movement through fun and enjoyable activities. The children also develop sporting skills in teamwork and group participation. All children in our school are involved in dance, games, athletics and gymnastic activities. Children in Years Three and Four also receive swimming lessons at Hexham pool. Year Four have the opportunity to attend a residential visit at Robinwood in Alston where they take part in outdoor and adventurous activities.

The school has strong links with outside sporting agencies that provide coaching expertise in a variety of sports including cricket, tag rugby and tennis.

At Hexham First we hope that our children will gain in confidence and begin to recognise the benefits of being healthy and active. We encourage our children to develop positive attitudes towards physical education and good sporting behaviour.
