PE and Sport
At Driffield CE Infant School our Mission Statement is 'Learning through Friendship and Fun' and we believe that physical education and outdoor activity has an important role in helping us to fulfil this statement. In addition 'Outdoor Learning' is one of our two curriculum drivers, so is an essential thread that runs through everything we do.
A wide range of PE is delivered to the pupils which is aimed to engage and inspire them. Lessons are taught by our Sports Coaches, Class Teachers and Specialist Dance Teacher. In addition to 2 PE lessons a week, children participate in daily 'Wake and Shake' dance sessions as well as lots of active lessons. The principles of PE and being active are built into as many of our lessons as possible including literacy and numeracy. All staff have been trained in delivering active literacy and maths lessons.
In Foundation Stage the children have continual access to the outdoors where they can engage with both large and small apparatus.
We use outdoor providers to support us in delivering the children's outdoor and adventure curriculum to improve team-building skills.
We have an extensive extra-curricular programme which includes both after- school and lunchtime clubs. We hold a weekly football club and a range of other sports throughout they year including, multi-skills, tag-rugby, cricket, tennis, athletics, rhythmic gymnastics, and cheer leading. Many of our children compete for local sports teams including football, rugby and gymnastics.
All children participate in both an inter-year sports day and a whole school Olympic Challenge Day every year. As members of the Driffield Sports Partnership, the children take part in inter-school multi-skills competitions, football tournaments and cross-country events.
