This resource has been designed to support educators and enable all students to develop and refine their FMS.

Play with Purpose: For Fundamental Movement Skills Teaching is a compilation of proven games and ideas to teach Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) for games and sports using a game-centred teaching approach. The resource emphasises learning motor skills and competencies in a ‘thinking’ way so children develop the competence and confidence to be active.
