The children at Lunsford are taught progressive skills in games and gymnastics. The hall is well equipped with apparatus and the school has a wide variety of resources for indoor and outdoor activities. The emphasis is on learning skills and sportsmanship but the school also teaches creative P.E. In the Infant years, children are helped to develop co-ordination, balance and dexterity. As the children grow, they take on more advanced skills and begin to learn game rules and techniques. By the junior years, the children are taking part in football, netball, rounders and cricket. The children also participate in dance activities which are taught alongside other PE activities. The lessons include aspects of movement and musical interpretation as well as devising dance routines.
From time to time matches are arranged against other schools and, in the summer term, a sports day is held when every child can take part.
After-school sports clubs are run throughout the year so that Infant and Junior children can develop their skills and enjoy participating in sporting activities (see clubs).
