|Teaching Fundamental Movement Skills to Children
Children do not automatically know how to throw, kick, run and jump as part of their growth and development. These are known as fundamental movement skills. In the same way kids need to learn the alphabet in order to read, they need to learn basic movement skills in order to lead a physically active, healthy life.
NSW Health have developed a set of lanyard cards which explain what the 12 Fundamental Movement Skills are, and how to recognise if a child is performing the skills correctly.
