The Selwyn Sports Trust has teamed up with Lincoln University to implement a Yr 1/2 Fundamental Movement Spectacular. Similar to last years (and this year’s) sports spectacular, only catering for a different year group. The objective of this day, is to give children the opportunity to develop their fundamental movement skills essential to competently and confidently participate in a wide variety of physical activities, sports, and recreational pursuits. Research has shown that children who develop FMS are more likely to engage in sport and physical activity throughout adolescence and adulthood, leading to a healthier lifestyle. Fundamental movement skills are the basic building blocks for more complex and specialised movement skills and patterns. This event is targeted purely at year 1-2 students, this is due to the fact that year 1-2 students do not often get a chance to attend a sporting opportunities outside of school.
