When I was 3, my parents pushed me to be involved in a number of different activities..

I didn’t realise back then, but it taught me a valuable lesson.

Not only did it create a love of sport, but it gave me the lessons to socialise and get on with others. It showed me the importance of fair play and sportsmanship.

These activities developed key gross and fine motor skills, cognitive skills such as problem solving and most importantly the social skills. My school years were happy times and I believe it was because it was all down to my early experiences.

Today I have my dream drop of I spring children from the age of 2 years old through to 18 to get involved in physical activity.

In todays Nurseries and schools there seems to be more and more children who lac the basic gross and fine motor skills. Children are unable to get on with each other they struggle to share or make the right choice. This coincides with the rise of technology and children becoming more sedentary.

Those who are active are happier, have bigger social groups, healthier and have a better mental wellbeing throughout their lives.

Give your child that head start by Joining Kanga Tots + Joeys.

What is Physical and Health Literacy and why is is it so important?

There is a lot of chat at the moment about knowing if your child is physically literate and the benefits. But what does Physically literacy mean?

The basics:

By the age of seven a child should be able to run, hop, jump, skip, throw, kick a ball and many other gross and fine motor skills,

This is through learning the ABC’s, Agility Balance and Coordination.

Each of these skills create the building blocks for all the different types of physical activity.

For example learning to run properly will allow you to take part in a variety of activities from rugby, tennis, hockey, gymnastics, parkour, squash and rounders…… the list could go on.

Without these basic life skills, children and adults will find it difficult to lead active healthy lifestyles.

Health literacy basically helps children to develop an understanding of the benefits of physical activity. It also develops cognitive and social skills that are important in later life and help children make the right choices.

So as you can see it’s something that is important for our long term health and the building blocks for children.

This short video provides more information on the benefits of Physical and health literacy.

We are really happy that our qualified teachers and coaches are making a big difference to the quality of PE within schools. A new school this year who was recommended Kanga Sports has seen a huge impact within their school. The confidence in staff delivering PE and the engagement of the students has been outstanding.

” The Kanga instructors provide high quality PE CPD for our teachers who are now growing in confidence and the self belief that they can teach PE.  This will ensure that as a school, we provide the pupils with quality, purposeful PE lessons.  They are friendly and approachable and always have the time to spend with our teachers to answer any questions or provide feedback on how their sessions are going.  We will certainly be continue our association with Kanga.”
