My 5 yr old pushing other children

My 5 yr old daughter has occasionly pushed other children since she was 2. Pushing me stopped a last year but it still carries on in reception school. When I asked her why she does this, she told me its because she likes it. We (Dad and I) are consistent in telling her that pushing is not good but she still does it. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on with her?

Thanks for that, we do have a few 'bundles' and she really enjoys it. I'll try this more often. School thinks it's her way of seeking attention as she was 8 weeks premature and is below the development age of the other kids.

My DC is still a toddler so I don't have any experience but my first thought is that she might enjoy a contact sport such as karate. A martial art would also teach her restraint. Some of my nephews and nieces love it.

When she pushes other children do you punish her? Remove toys/ privileges or such? And do you reward good behaviour?
