School Age Institute – Physical Literacy in School Age Programs

July 16


School Age Institute
Saturday July 16th, 2022 9:30am to 1:00pm
Physical Literacy in School Age Programs
9:30am to 11:00am
Adults assume that children and young people are naturally active; however, current research indicates that this
is not always the case as they are now engaging in high levels of sedentary behaviours and low levels of physical
activity. Levels of physical activity in the early years are indicators of physical activity in later life and health, and
are the foundation for physical literacy. Educators have an important role to play in supporting children and
young people to develop the disposition to become physically literate and physically active. If you would like to
engage in reflective conversations and gain strategies on how to enhance physical literacy within your school age
program, join us on Saturday July 16th at 9:30am
11:00am to 11:15am Break
Outdoor Play for School Age Children
11:15am to 12:45pm
This session will look at a variety of low cost and no cost materials, and authentic tools that can be utilized to
provide open-ended experiences in the great outdoors. Along with experiences that adapt an outdoor, colearning approach. This session considers how outdoor play changes as children get older and how to meet the
needs of a varied age range.
