18PDST001 Physical Literacy through Fundamental Movement Skills - Day 1 Mop-Up Seminar

PDST FMS Day 1 Mop-Up Seminar for primary schools

This March, due to demand, the PDST are delighted to offer this Physical Literacy seminar again to those schools that were unavailable to attend last year. This will be a repeat of the seminar that was offered in Term 3 of the last school year and Term 1 of this year.

This seminar will offer one full day’s training in Physical literacy through Fundamental Movement Skills. Physical literacy gives pupils the tools they need to take part in physical activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. Research shows that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned Fundamental Movement Skills.

You are invited to nominate two teachers from your school to attend (if your school has not already attended this seminar). Attendees will need to be suitably dressed to participate in activities. The Department of Education and Skills will provide substitute cover where required. Each teacher that attends will receive a copy of the Move Well, Move Often resource to bring back to their school.

Please note, the next phase of this training - Physical Literacy Seminar 2 - will take place from April to June 2018.
