Grimsdell - PE

PE

Our Physical Education programme provides each child with the opportunity to learn vital skills for their development.

Our specialist PE teacher will teach your child balance, co-ordination, gross motor skills, ball skills and team work and there is lots of variety, including gymnastics, games, large apparatus, tennis, swimming, athletics and dance.

In Year 2 the children start to play team sports at Belmont, using its coaches and facilities. The children play netball, hockey, rounders and cricket for the girls, and touch rugby, football and cricket for the boys – it’s a wonderful way to build their playing skills so they are ready for Year 3 sports at Belmont.

Students from Mill Hill School run an annual sports festival for us, and our summer sports day is a highlight of the year. Everyone takes part, there is healthy competition, and teachers’ and parents’ races and a good old fashioned tug o’ war.

We also have different special activities within the year, from an annual Golf Workshop, trampoline taster lessons, a swimming gala, Yoga, street, modern and tap dance workshops and a festival of sports.
