FACE TO FACE: Coaching Children - Physical Literacy and Fundamental Movement Skills

FACE TO FACE: Coaching Children - Physical Literacy and Fundamental Movement Skills

This course will run Face to Face should Covid Restrictions allow at the time.

The aim of this course is to help teachers further develop their knowledge and understanding in the areas of physical literacy and Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS). The importance of these skills has never been higher. These skills are the building blocks for all forms of physical exercise from walking to gymnastics. This course will give you as a teacher the tools to help practically develop these skills within your pupils in their PE classes and in the classroom

 A key part of the course will be looking at the key FMS and looking at how they can be assessed and then how these FMS can be improved through a variety of inclusive and interactive games and activities that will also incorporate social distance guidelines should they still be required.

The course will look at how FMS activities link to both the PE Curriculum and the overall primary school curriculum. There will be a mixture of tutor led discussions, shared learning and reflective practice. There will be a large emphasis placed on practical learning and how to observe, analyse and teach Fundamental Movements Skills. Teachers will also be exposed to a large resource of games and activities they can take back into their classrooms to help them develop these skills.
