Wheldon Infant School & Nursery

Physical Education


At Wheldon Infant and Nursery School we teach a high quality, exciting PE curriculum that promotes a positive approach to physical activity, health and wellbeing. Children will learn about their body and how it moves and responds to physical activity. They will make links between being active, eating well and keeping their body healthy. We strive to create an environment where children feel safe and are encouraged to be aware of the importance of safety in P.E. but also to try new things and ‘have a go’.

Children will develop their fundamental skills in agility, balance and coordination enabling them to be physically literate. Children will refine their fine and gross motor skills by partaking in a range of physical activities and develop their core strength and larger muscle groups in a co-ordinated way.

Children will learn to cooperate and collaborate as part of a team or with a partner, helping each other to be successful. However they will also learn to take part as an individual in some of our competitive challenges. We practice our sportsmanship and fairness in all sessions, encouraging a positive response to all challenges even if we are not the winner.  We have frequent opportunity to take part in and compete with other local schools through close links with Castleford Academy.

Our curriculum is inclusive to every individual ensuring all learning is accessible to all children in our school, regardless of their level of physical ability or health. Children will be supported in developing an appreciation for their own and others capabilities.
