May 2017 Nationwide Seminars - Fundamental Movement Skills
The PDST are delighted to offer one full day’s training in Physical Literacy through Fundamental Movement Skills. Physical literacy gives pupils the tools they need to take part in physical activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. Research shows that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned Fundamental Movement Skills.
Fundamental Movement Skills are the basic building blocks of movement and are an essential part of everyday life and recreational activity. It is only when these skills are mastered that a child can go on to develop specialised movement skills, which will allow them to reach their potential in sports-specific endeavours. A copy of the PDST’s new Physical Literacy resource pack which brings Fundamental Movement Skills to life for teachers, will be provided to all schools attending this training.
