At Trinity we are very proud of the amount of PE opportunities we provide for the children on a weekly basis. The children are offered Physical Education (PE) through different activities throughout the school week. The children In the Early Years Foundation Stage have continuous outdoor provision to improve gross motor skills and to develop movement patterns. Fine motor skills are then improved with tasks such as dough disco and weaving. In Key Stage One, the children will have a Sports Specialist leading one of their P.E. sessions and have the class teacher for their other P.E sessions. In Key stage One, skills are further developed by children being taught the foundations of movement, balance and co-ordination through sports skills, passing and receiving, dance, athletics, and striking and fielding. Key Stage Two children then develop and apply these skills in team games such as football, dodge ball, cricket, tennis, netball, rounders and football. Children engage in a wide variety of competitions at both Level 1 and Level 2 (against each other and against other schools) on a weekly basis.
Adding to this, we work with West Lancashire School Sports Partnership to include:
- Mini Wheelers
- P.E. Plus
- Scooting Stars.
- Bike ability
As well as this, we have a wonderful forest school area which has been designed and prepared for takeoff in 2020! The School is currently training teachers who will be qualified to teach forest school activities over the next 12 months.
Children have weekly swimming lessons in Year 5. This is a vital life skill which we ensure all children participate in.
