well ours are supposed to have it once a week
however the teaching assistant told me in the first term it took so long to get them all changed they were only in the pe hall for about 10 minutes before it was dinnertime grin
however they do other physical stuff like a 'wet welly walk' etc

Yes smile
Ours didn't need trainers for the first term or so (they reckon adding shoes into the whole changing routine is best left as long as possible!)

The children in reception at the school at work at all do PE. They can chose to do it in pants or vest or can take in shorts and t shirt. Most seem to go for the former.

In Wales each class including reception must have 2 seperate PE lessons a week minimum. Our children wear shortts and t shirt and go bare feet. Please put your name on the kit clearly as too often in the class I am inthe children muddle up and put their shorts and someone elses top in their bag ect. 90% do not have names in hmm

I'm a reception teacher and we don't have PE lessons but have daily activities for Physical development.

DD does PE twice a week. Have you had a new parent meeting yet? They'll tell you all about it all then I should think.
