This comprehensive and user-friendly manual is aimed at developing children’s all-round physical and athletic fluency through a wide range of enjoyable and stimulating activities and challenges based on the core actions of walking, running, jumping and throwing.
These activities and challenges are suitable, for all children either as they are written, or slightly adapted for different needs. They are intended to stimulate interest and boost self-esteem. They shift the emphasis from always making judgements about winning or losing, to setting and achieving goals for the improvement of personal or team performances. This stimulates interest in athletics, makes lessons more physically active, and retains the competitive element in a positive way. Children instantly recognise when improvements have been made, and indeed, they are clearly visible and can be recorded.
This teaching manual follows the same comprehensive and detailed format of the Primary School Gymnastics, Games and Dance manuals. It follows the same structure of the teaching guide, detailed teaching material in units of work, and skill development and challenges in the Appendix. In common with all the other Val Sabin manuals, it follows National Curriculum requirements, links with Q.C.A guidance and outcomes and develops the four strands - acquiring and developing skills, selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas, evaluating and improving performance, and knowledge and understanding of fitness and health.
The teaching material is very user-friendly and is presented in detailed units of work and lesson plans for teachers to use according to their level of experience and confidence and contains:-
Every unit contains a balanced coverage of running, throwing and jumping activities.
The Appendix is a comprehensive section of additional material.
This organisation will increase the opportunities for extension work or the card can be used to encourage independent learning.
All the activities in the manual are tried, tested and proven to work, both for developing and maintaining interest, enthusiasm and self-esteem, and for improving athletic performance in a positive way.
