Physical Literacy is at the foundation of all controlled movement. The experience children have at the earliest years of schooling determine how quickly they develop movement confidence and love of being active. This introductory course is aimed at both specialist and non-specialist teachers. It will provide a coherent programme of physical development activities from Reception to the end of Key Stage One. Teachers will be presented with a range of basic activities which help children establish the building blocks for increasingly complex movements. These in turn lead to games skills. Teachers will be introduced to the cognitive factors that link basic movements to bring about adaptability and creativity.
