Physical Literacy

At Togher N.S. we have integrated Physical Literacy into our Physical Education programme. Physical Literacy gives children the tools they need to take part in physical activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. The physically literate child can be described as having the motivation, confidence, movement competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take part in physical activity throughout their lives. The younger children have been practicing their locomotion skills- walking, running, hopping, skipping, dodging and side-stepping. Of course as a “Hands on – Minds on” school this practice involves a lot of fun and games.
