P.E. at Highfield Infants'
At Highfield Infants’ we believe:
Physical activity develops pupils’ fundamental motor skills that enables them to develop physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities.
Physical activity provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups.
It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles and helps children understand the importance of exercising for a lifetime.
All year 2 children will have the chance of joining the Junior school cross country club from September but if you can't wait till then why not try Bromley's Junior Park run http://www.parkrun.org.uk/bromley-juniors/
Kent cricketers visit Highfield Infants
On Friday 6th May Kent County Cricket club visited the school. The whole school took part in the ‘Spirit of Cricket’ assembly where we talked about the values of the game and how they linked with our own school values. We were also fortunate enough to meet two cricketers; Adam Riley and Adam Bell who answered questions on all things related to cricket. Sixty Year Two children took part in a cricket training session with the players which included playing cricket games, bowling and batting. All the children really enjoyed the experience and finished the session with a photo and signed team poster.
If you would like to find out more about playing cricket please visit:
