Athletics & Extra-CurricularFebruary 22, 2013
At Clifton School, we provide a program that develops Physical Literacy. Physical literacy is when kids develop the skills, confidence and love of movement to be active for life. Kids develop Physical Literacy gradually through a variety of structured and unstructured activities. This year the focus has been on outdoor pysical literacy. Here are some of the benefits of being outdoors:
- Learning new skills such as: climbing, swinging and balance.
- Practicing skills such as: running, kicking, throwing, catching and striking.
- Learning how to play and cooperate with other students.
- Learning how to create and run games.
Realizing that physical activity can be performed in different environments (in the air, on the ground, on snow and ice).
