When a child is confident and competent with these skills, they can develop sport–specific and complex movement skills. Most importantly, having a firm grasp of the fundamental movement skills and being physically literate is more likely to lead a child to enjoy a long life of physical activity and creates a happier, more resilient and more trusting young person (Sport England Key Findings). This session will focus on the fundamental movement skills of Run, Jump and Throw and explore how to develop these skills in a safe, fun and inclusive environment.
