The EYFS framework is organised differently to the National Curriculum that is used for children in Year 1 to Year 6: it is organised across seven areas of learning rather than subject areas.
The table below identifies the statements taken from the 2020 Development Matters which are prerequisite skills for Physical Education (PE) within the National Curriculum.
The most relevant statements for PE are taken from the following areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Expressive Arts and Design
Children have the opportunity to develop early skills in PE as part of daily continuous indoor and outdoor provision and focussed sessions which develop their fine and gross motor skills. Our Reception also have a PE slot once a week with Mr Chapman.
