Aspiration, Determination, Success


Reception – Spring 1


In this unit the skills and activities developed include travelling, balancing, stillness, climbing and jumping. There is also a bank of knowledge and understanding that relates to healthy active lifestyles education. 


Children will experience making shapes, using different parts of their body, and taking their body weight in different ways whilst moving on the floor and apparatus. 


Unit 3 aims to support practitioners when working in the hall and on the playground to improve children’s confidence and competence on large climbing and swinging apparatus plus portable ‘gymnastics’ equipment such as nesting tables, stools, benches and mats.
