- High quality PE lessons

Twinkl Move Scheme of work

At Clowne Infant and Nursery School, we use the Twinkl Move scheme of work to teach Physical Education. Twinkl Move offers a coherently planned sequence of lessons to help teachers ensure they have progressively covered the requirements of the PE National Curriculum. The scheme of work ensures that children have a varied and well mapped out PE curriculum. It provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the PE National Curriculum for KS1 for both indoor and outdoor PE. In KS1, the focus of the PE curriculum is on the development of the fundamental skills that will be built upon in KS2 when they are applied in specific sports. At Twinkl Move, it is the intention to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE in all young people. The aim is to help ensure a positive and healthy physical and mental outlook in the future and help young people to develop essential skills like leadership and teamwork. Within each lesson, it strives to give every child the opportunity to develop skills in PE, consider the impact on their health and fitness, compete/perform and evaluate.

Early Years

The most relevant early years outcomes for PE are taken from the following areas of learning: Physical Development. Teachers use these objectives to meet PE requirements throughout Nursery and Reception. Please see document below. 

Key Stage One

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

- master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities

- participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending

- perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Keeping Active 

Throughout the school day we like to keep active by doing 'wake and shake', active lessons, our daily run and dough disco.


In addition to our PE lessons, the children also take part in weekly yoga lessons. Each year group, take it in turn on a termly rota to take part in the yoga sessions. The children love to learn all the new yoga poses.

Teambuilding skills

In January, Bolsover School Sport Partnership came into school and set up different activities for the Year Two children to complete. The aim of the different activities was for the children to work on their team building skills. The children had great fun and worked well together completing the different challenges. 

Sports Day

We had great fun doing sports day this year. We competed against other children in our year group doing different races. We did races such as running race, egg and spoon race and a sack race.

Jungle breakout challenge 


In the summer, Bolsover School Sport Partnership came into school and set up different challenges for the children to complete. The aim of the different challenges were for the children to work as a team to complete them. They have to follow a trail blindfolded, cross a river, complete a agility course to collect different food and to fill a tube  (with holes) with water to retrieve a key.  All the children worked well together and had great fun!  Check out the photos below. 


Sponsored 'Scootathon'

To help some raise money, the whole school took part in a sponsored ‘scootathon’. The children brought in their scooters to school and they had to see how many times they could go round the playground. Children from Nursery through to Year 2 took part.  They had lots of fun and raised lots of money for our school and Sheffield Children's Hospital.
