At Hillcrest Early Years Academy, we provide children with physical opportunities in a fun and exciting way to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We recognise the importance of children’s postural development, co-ordination and dexterity, as well as teaching sport specific skills. Our broad, balanced and engaging PE curriculum tries to ensure that all children have a lifelong participation and an embedded love of PESSPA. Understanding the importance of exercise, mental well-being and the need for a healthy, balanced lifestyle is covered through PE sessions and cross curricular links with Science and PSHE. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We place a high emphasis on a mastery-based approach with regards to Physical Education and ensure that a thorough build-up of skills is created as the children move through the Academy. Our intention is to provide engaging sports opportunities that allow children to challenge themselves, so they become better learners and have the skills and confidence to participate in a range of sports.
