We will also be exploring and handling apparatus such as small/large balls, beanbags and quoits.
I will also be encouraging P1 to get changed for gym with a lot more independence, they should be trying to dress themselves and make an attempt to remove jumpers/undo buttons etc. This could also be encouraged and practised at home.

Can I please highlight the importance of having gym shoes that fit properly for PE. It has come to my attention that many children have unsafe footwear and this is very dangerous.
Could I please also ask that all children make sure they have a change of t-shirt for gym for hygiene reasons. School t-shirts should not be worn for gym.
