Physical Education and Development 3-11 Summary

Physical Education and Development 3-11: A Guide for Teachers by Jonathan Doherty (Leeds Metropolitan University, UK)

Physical education plays a vital role in children's development, health and well-being, and is an increasingly important part of the government's strategy for healthy schools. The role and profile of physical education at primary level continues to grow as awareness of the need to encourage an active lifestyle at an early age increases.

This accessible guide to teaching PE within the 3-11 age range will allow all non-specialist primary teachers to approach the subject with confidence, encouraging a better understanding of its role within schools and the special contribution it can make to children's lives. The book:

  • shows how to guide children's movement experiences from the Foundation Stage right through to adventurous activities and sports games at the end of Key Stage 2
  • contains a wealth of practical advice on developmentally appropriate practical ideas
  • supports the PECCSL strategy (PE, School Sport and Club Links) of providing at least 2 hours a week on high quality PE and school sport within schools.

Written for all early years and primary students on teacher education courses, this book is also relevant for teachers, HLTAs and other non-PE specialists working with children up to the age of 11.
