Elevating Athletics (KS1/KS2)

This teaching resource develops the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver enjoyable, engaging and progressive lessons at key stage 1 and 2, and shows how to maximise activity levels while developing the fundamental movement skills that underpin athleticism. 

Includes a first-class resource pack/teaching resource (normally £31) 

What you will learn 

The overall focus behind the Elevating Athletics Approach is as follows:

  • To bring the sport of athletics to life and make it accessible
  • To provide teachers with a creative and practical resource that will help them encourage and motivate youngsters participate and  achieve in athletics
  • To ensure that athletics is taught in a more inclusive and engaging manner, with modern approaches that are less reliant on formal didactic delivery and focus more on learning
  • To ensure all children receive a positive experience of athletics, where the emphasis is on participation, enjoyment, mastery and the acquisition of skills, so that they maintain interest in the sport
  • To create a greater understanding that running, jumping and throwing underpin the vast majority of sports, and ensure children acquire and develop these skills throughout their education
  • To reach out and appeal to a much wider audience of young people to ensure we have a sustainable number of 16-17 year olds in the sport, who are committed to competing at senior level.
