Synopsis

Physical Education in the Early Years by Pauline Wetton

This book begins with an overview of the first months of a child's life, with an indication of the major movement milestones which all children should reach before they enter the pre-school phase. The rest of the book gives information about developing children's physical skills in dance, games and gymnastics throughout the pre-school and infant school phase. It also addresses many of the contemporary issues surrounding the delivery of the PE curriculum in schools including the assessment of pupil's performance. This book will help students, teachers and curriculum leaders deliver a sound PE education to children aged 3-7, and will also prove useful to all those involved in early years education. Pauline Wetton is currently a lecturer in education and an assistant director of sport at the University of Durham. The Teaching and Learning in the First Three Years at School series is edited by Joy Palmer.
