MoveWell is a new resource to assist teachers, kaiako and others who may be involved with implementing activities to support and extend children’s learning, confidence, ability, and enjoyment in movement.
The resource uses an enjoyable, games-centred approach to develop children’s knowledge, attitudes and movement skills.
MoveWell is the outcome of collaboration between Sport NZ, Physical Education New Zealand, the Accident Compensation Corporation of New Zealand, and is supported by the Ministry of Education.
Children love to move and MoveWell aims to build from their playful and creative nature, not by just ‘teaching skills’ but by creating environments that allow them to explore, problem solve and build their movement abilities, competence and confidence to play games with others and feel a sense of success.
