Exercise is a vital part of school life and is important for both body and mind. Physical development is a key area in The Early Years Curriculum, and in Reception, the children experience a broad variety of physical activities. The children have the opportunity to use their bodies in different ways; this may be from copying dance routines in "Move it, Move it" with Year 6 children, or PE lessons using the apparatus in the Sports Hall, or Games sessions using a variety of sports equipment. In Reception, the children also use the climbing frames in both playgrounds and experience physical activity in Forest School.
