P. E at Parkgate Juniors inspires all children to take part in a range of sporting activities and develop a lifelong love of sport. We encourage children to be active both during the school day and throughout the week at home. Every child is taught a variety of skills through sports such as: cricket, gymnastics, athletics, basketball and dance that develop their physical coordination, fitness and stamina. Children are shown in lessons how to lead a healthy active lifestyle, which can be used in everyday life and positively impact upon their well being. Every lesson promotes an understanding of leadership skills, rule keeping, building self-esteem and confidence. We give the children an opportunity to experience success and deal with loses in competitions against each other and schools in our local area. We provide a range of after school clubs based on the children’s interest, that allow children to build social relationships by being part of a school team. At Parkgate we create an atmosphere that sport is for all. We create a passion for exercise which can stay with them for life.
