An effective physical curriculum should explore the following key areas:

  • Eye/hand co-ordination and fine motor control;
  • Posture;
  • Spatial awareness; and
  • Orientation and movement.

(Aird, 2001)


A teacher's skill lies in the ability to make that exploration exciting to each and every individual.


The exploration and the physical practice are key elements that will help the teacher to connect with the pupil.
