The resource focuses upon running, jumping and throwing, the building blocks of athletics, which in turn underpin nearly all other sports and physical activities. Within this resource teachers will find three teaching sections covering the main stages of development:

  • Ages 5 - 7 Years
  • Ages 7 - 9 Years
  • Ages 9 - 12 Years
