Physical Literacy at Copthorne

 

What is Physical Literacy?

Physical literacy is when children have developed the skills, confidence, and love of movement to be physically active for life.

 

At Copthorne, our aim is for our children to develop the fundamental movement skills in order to become physically literate.

 

The physical literacy movements are integrated into our everyday routines in order for the children to progress through the different stages. 

 

Each week a new movement is introduced and worked on in school and we also post the movements on ClassDojo for parents for work at home.
