Put simply, it is the skills, motivation, confidence and knowledge to be active.
Why is Physical Literacy so important?
Children are spending more time playing indoors and on screens than outdoors and in the park. As a result, many are failing to develop the basic building blocks of movement such as running, throwing, kicking, catching, jumping and balancing.
The challenge is not only to help children develop these fundamental movement skills but to also want to be physically active – understanding why regular physical activity is so important to their futures.
