New Resource found to assist us in our Health and PE lessons
FMS is one of the most important aspects of development of our younger students.
It hasn’t changed how to complete the skill but the way we communicate the information has.
Here’s some more info for you to use

As Teachers, especially at a primary school level, its very important to look at the way children learn in PE. Over the years the way we throw and catch hasn’t changed, but what has changed is the manner of how we get our information across. There are KTP’s for each FMS, but are there other ways to assist the learning of younger children when forming a foundation of skills to move onto specialized skills and sports.
We are going to look at different methods, games and professional skills that may open your eyes to different ways of assessment, teaching practice and of course ways to get our children prepared for middle and upper school sports which in tail will make sure they lead an active healthy lifestyle when older.
Thank you to Dr.Helen Baert for this comprehensive look at how we teach and assess the Fundamental motor skills

Enjoy my friends
We have come across some fantastic resources to do with the teaching of the Fundamental motor skills. Its very important to understand that even though there are set KTP’s for each of the skills, we as teachers must look at the development of each child into consideration.
The way we teach like using analogies and themes to gain understanding, but also the practical component of this. Even if we see that the skill isn’t been done completely right, are the children on their way to mastery.
Changing up the way its taught could be the key to opening our students minds to gaining a better understanding and that will show up in their physical performance.
Below are some resources that we have found

AcePE back again, witha primary level focus on developing the Fundamental motor skills .
There is a lot to be said with regards devlopment and how we can break down the skills in an overall sense so kids can get the best out of their learning
Catching especially is the hardest on i have found, as this skill leads on to skills like striking.
Take a look at one of the first manuals i have found
P-2 FMS Skills
A 56 page PDF which i have read and will contunue to refer to
Enjoy one of many
