The strand units of the athletics curriculum include:
- Understanding and appreciation of athletics
Athletics was our strand for development and we focused on this strand in our Physical Education lessons to develop these skills. This coincided with our Daily Mile running initiative as the children were developing their running skills on a daily basis with this.
When delivering the athletics programme it was important to provide opportunities for the child to challenge him/herself to run faster or for a longer period, to throw an implement further and to jump further or higher.
