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?

Children should be taking part in as many different physical activities as possible at this stage. Exposure to a multi-skills environment will ensure that they build the competence and confidence to lead active, healthy lifestyles. It is at this stage that good habits are created which could reduce the risk of health conditions such as obesity, heart problems and mental illness in later life.

Parents can be encouraged to seek out Dragon Multi-skills and Sport opportunities within the community and at home.
