What is Physical Literacy at this stage?
Ideally by this stage children have developed the basic skills and now have the opportunity to have a go at all types of activities. A multi-skills approach to delivery will allow children to apply their skills into any environment and become a multi-skilled individual.
What can I do to play my part?
Encouraging your child to take part in as many different physical activities as possible will benefit them greatly at this stage. The multi-skills approach is being adopted by many community providers and should also be supported in the home. This will allow your child to apply their skills into any environment and become a more all-rounded athlete.
