AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SALFORD PHYSICAL LITERACY PROGRAMME WHAT IS PHYSICAL LITERACY?
“The motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to maintain physical activity throughout life” (Professor Margaret Whitehead, Key features of a curriculum to promote physical literacy 2011) It is something that everyone has the potential to be, by undertaking an individual journey of guided learning through a range of activities. To become competent and confident movers, or physically literate, children need activities which promote: • Locomotion - movement from one point to another • Stability - body balance in static and dynamic movement situations • Object control - sending, receiving and controlling an object
THE NATIONAL CONTEXT Physical Literacy is both a national and international concern
The Youth Sport Trust has been working with Bupa to develop

INTERMEDIATE UNIT: INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS UNIT OVERVIEW The intention of this scheme is to specifically develop pupils’s agility, balance, coordination and general body control over the course of this and subsequent units. This is achieved via structured lessons that focus on key movements outlined separately for each lesson, for example “balancing/dribbling” in lesson 3. In each lesson you will find descriptions of these movements for your ongoing assessment and also clearly labelled “teaching points” which will assist you in teaching the movements properly. In addition to this, we have provided a set assessment lesson for both the first and last lesson of each unit, the purpose of which is to provide you with a measurable and repeatable benchmark for each child’s attainment.
ASSESSMENT OVERVIEW Each unit has three distinct challenges based around AGILITY, BALANCE and COORDINATION which the teacher can use as a guide to measure pupil attainment. Variations are taught in the first and last lesson of each unit. Key note on gathering evidence:
l Video or photo evidence should be used to compare performance between the two assessment lessons at either end of the unit. The assessment criteria for the first and last lesson of this unit are as follows:
C HA L L ENGES CHALLENGE 1 (agility): Can pupils move easily among others, evade defenders and change direction with control? ASSESSMENT POINTS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR PUPILS SHOULD BE:-
1. Looking ahead and anticipating movements of defenders 2. Shifting body weight from one foot to the other to change direction
3. Controlling speed: accelerating by leaning forward on their toes and decelerating by leaning back on their heels
‘MOVE WITH’ CHALLENGE 2 (balance): Can pupils balance on one leg while throwing and catching? ASSESSMENT POINTS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR PUPILS SHOULD BE:BALANCING 1. Stood upright with a straight back, using arms to balance
1. Be looking towards the target (i.e. catcher)
1. Watching / tracking the path of the object to be caught
2. Adjusting their body weight and arm placement to retain balance, e.g. by moving arms slightly
2. Be throwing underarm, aiming towards the target
2. Adjusting position (e.g. by hopping) when necessary to match object path, retaining balance throughout
CHALLENGE 3 (coordination focus): Can pupils throw a beanbag into the hoop with accuracy, evading a defender? ASSESSMENT POINTS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR PUPILS SHOULD BE:1. Looking towards / focusing on target 2. Throwing with an underarm action with control
4. Evading defender’s movements with counter movements (e.g. looking around opponent, moving side to side to find space to throw)
3. Watching defender’s movement
UNIT AND LESSON NUMBER: INTERMEDIATE LESSON 1 Movements/skills covered in this session A S S E S S M E N T S E S S I O N : GENERAL BODY CONTROL, AGILITY, BALANCE AND COORDINATION VIA THROWING / CATCHING / DEFENDING / EVADING DEFENDERS EQUIPMENT AND RESOURCES IDEAL l Cones l 4 hoops (same size) l beanbags (enough for one per pair) l 4 sets of coloured bibs MINIMUM OR ALTERNATIVE l Assorted beanbag or small balls (enough for 1 per pair) l Hall or playground markings l small amount of cones to make ‘goals’ for main game

C A T C H I N G Keep an eye on the ball – put hands together in a cup shape – wrap hands around it and pull it into body
EVADING DEFENDERS Track movements of other team members – look for space to move into – communicate with team members to make the best use of space
D E F E N D I N G (THROWING CONTEXT E.G. NETBALL / BASKETBALL) Place yourself in the path of the ball (i.e. between the two opponents who are passing it) – extend your arms above your head – make your body as large as possible – move your arms and body to intercept the ball
W A R M U P A C T I V I T Y: FOOTIE MIMES: GENERAL AGILITY/BALANCE A N D C O O R D I N AT I O N l Set out a plain coned area as per main game but without hoops and cones l Pupils walk around, gradually increasing movement to explore the space l Introduce series of mimes relating to football, as follows: rolling/bowling action = “goalie”, jumping/heading action = “header”, kicking imaginary ball in net = “striker – pupils then respond to commands as they are shouted PROGRESSION IF TIME: l Walk around with a ball and ask pupils to catch it and return it l Use a variety of throws and bounces at different heights l Extend to providing 3 or 4 pupils with balls in the same role and repeat
MAIN GAME: OGRES AND SWAMPS: THROWING/DEFENDING/EVADING DEFENDERS (NOTE: Use For Initial Assessment - See Assessment Notes)
OGRE AND SWAMP l Set out area as per Diagram 1 l The aim of the game is for children to take turns to approach the defender (ogre) individually and try to throw a beanbag into the hoop (swamp) l The attacker then takes the place of the defender and the defender goes to the back of the line l Extend to splitting children into groups of 3-4 attackers at one time and 1 defender to play the game on their own TEACHING POINT: Take time to demonstrate how the ogre should defend, using Q and A where possible EXTENSION SUGGESTION: WARM UP: Add more mimes or choose a different topic area e.g. animals, alphabet. MAIN TASK: Use more defenders

MAIN GAME: TWISTER: PIVOT/TURN/TWIST + SEND/RECEIVE l Set out 4 ladders with cones alternately either side as per DIAGRAM 2 l Demonstrate how pupils need to move in a pivoting motion as per DIAGRAM
3, reaching down to touch cones NOTE: this is a complex move and may require re-teaching as the activity progresses l Increase pace as pupils’ skills improve PROGRESSION:
l Lead on to providing a feeder each side of the ladder as per DIAGRAM 4 to throw and catch a beanbag to them alternately all the way down the line.
Children swap with a feeder when they reach the end. (TEACHING POINT: ensure children know who has to swap so that all children get an equal turn).
END GAME: l Which team can get all the players to the other end in the fastest time, without dropping the beanbag? EXTENSION SUGGESTIONS: MAIN TASK: Repeat with another beanbag balanced on the head of the child going down the ladder. Can they make it down without dropping it?

As such the instructions are the same (apart from the final progression which uses a large ball instead of a beanbag) as follows:
l Set out 4 ladders with cones alternately either side as per DIAGRAM 1
l Demonstrate how pupils need to move in a pivoting motion as per DIAGRAM 2, reaching down to touch cones
l Increase pace as pupils’ skills improve PROGRESSION: l Lead on to providing a feeder each side of the ladder as per DIAGRAM 3 throw and catch a beanbag back alternately all the way down the line. Children swap with a feeder when they read the end. (TEACHING POINT: ensure children know who has to swap so that all children get an equal turn). END GAME: l Which team can get all the players to the other end in the fastest time, without dropping the ball? EXTENSION SUGGESTIONS: WARM UP: Children could use different movements to move around the hall e.g. bunny hop/hop/leap/star jump. MAIN GAME: Provide different methods of feeding the ball e.g. throwing to head, bouncing to foot – also can children balance a beanbag on their head while they move down the ladder?
