Taking Part in PE
We all want our children to be active and healthy. Sport and PE is a great way to help this. There is a sport or activity out there for everyone. Sport is not just for players, but also fans, being a sports fan can lead to lifelong friendships.
As with everything, not all children learn the same way or by just watching. Strategies like breaking down the activity into stages, giving clear instructions, giving time to learn each step, can help. Get your child to say out loud what they are doing when they are doing it. You could help them feel the movement by having your hand over their hands, guiding them through the movement.
Please review the advice on this page. However, depending on the cause for the PE difficulty, it may be worth considering a referral to the Physiotherapy service or speaking to your GP regarding the concern.
