Pre PLAy uses different types of questions to fully assess a child’s physical literacy. All questions ask that the child’s physical literacy is considered compared to other children that are the same age. This is important, because older children have further developed their skills compared to younger children. For example, we would expect children who are 42 months would be able to throw or kick a ball further and with greater accuracy than children who are 24 months. Children who are older are also better able to combine different skills together and complete more complex skills. For example, a child will generally walk and run, before hopping and skipping. Also, children who are older are more likely to move in a more coordinated and less rigid or awkward manner. Further information and instructions about each section are included below.
