PE at Hardwicke
Hardwicke Parochial Primary Academy ensures that children are physically active, improving physical, social and emotional health and well-being. We provide opportunities for children to discover and develop a healthy lifestyle and offer pupils the opportunity to compete in sports and other activities, in order to help build character and reinforce values such as fairness and respect.
Physical Development in Reception
Here at Hardwicke, we appreciate the importance of travelling to, and from, school in a healthy and eco-friendly way.
We, therefore, participate in termly 'Walk/Wheel' competitions, to encourage our families to make an active choice about how they get to school.
Benefits of walking or 'wheeling' to school include:
-Reduction in local traffic and congestion - less cars parked along the roads, and travelling around the school grounds
-Hitting our 30 minutes, per day, minimum activity goal
-An active travel to school helps engage our minds and bodies ready for the day ahead, by releasing endorphines
Prizes are randomly selected for children who participate the most in our challenges.
