Our PE lead is Mrs Dickinson. If you have any questions about PE, please contact her via the school office.
Physical Education (PE)
P.E is taught at Brookfield by class teachers and a PE teacher who covers PPA time (1 session per class). Each year children consolidate learnt skills and learn new skills. Please see the curriculum overview below to find out which areas each year group cover across the year.
The children are assessed every term according to the assessment criteria for each unit of work. The children are assessed in the form of gold, silver and bronze. If children achieve bronze by the end of the lesson they have completed skills to a basic level, silver to a good level or gold to a high level. Children are encouraged to self-assess, deciding how well they have executed different skills and activities during each lesson. They build confidence within this as they move further up the school.
We do of course celebrate our P.E during sports day in the Summer as well as prompting P.E skills in different after school clubs (information on this years clubs to come soon!) and we also encourage children to be active during playtimes, where they have access to various sports equipment to play with and enjoy with their friends.
At Brookfield Infant School all year groups access Go Noodle throughout the day to stay active and alert!
Year 1 and 2 complete their mile run at least twice a week and EYFS will begin this in either term 3 and 4!
The Yearly Athlete Visit
2020-2021 - At the end of last year we were lucky enough to have an visit from the athlete Frederick Afrifa! Frederick talked to us about being a sprinter and he encouraged and inspired us to just keep moving forward to achieve our goals!
2021-2022 - This year, Darran Challis visited us and told us about his amazing life and the challenges he has faced. He has been injured and recently has found out he has Parkinson's disease but throughout all of this, he doesn't give up!!
We had to complete a fitness circuit with these athletes to raise lots of money for our school and the charity 'Sports for Schools'. It was hard but we really enjoyed it!
Brookfield Infant School took part in a Sports Competition at the end of January 2020!
