We base some of our P.E sessions for the Junior syndicate around the Perceptual Motor Programme(PMP). Students are introduced to skills needed for formal learning in reading, writing and maths. All these skills start to develop from birth and continue through life. There is a point where children need to have skills if they are to cope in specific subject areas.
Sessions includes fitness, locomotion, eye/hand or eye/foot coordination, balance and eye tracking activities. Children are actively involved at all times.
All skills taught using PMP are transferable:
- Bowling – bowls, ten pin bowling, cricket.
- Hitting – softball, tennis.
- Throwing – cricket, t-ball, netball.
