The Trusts FunSkills programme is about creating fun and positive environments for tamariki to engage in quality movement experiences. The opportunity to move and play is important because it supports tamariki to develop social, physical, and mental wellbeing. It’s all about having fun, being active, enjoying the outdoors, and developing healthy, happy, well-rounded tamariki.
THE FUNSKILLS PROGRAMME
The programme - aimed at junior primary school students - is designed to build teachers' confidence to deliver quality movement experiences for tamariki. Schools are provided with two professional development workshops for teachers where they learn ‘WHY’ movement is so important to the holistic development of tamariki as well as gain an understanding of some of the activities provided in our resource pack. We make teaching physical activity fun and easy for teachers!
As well as the professional development for teachers, schools receive 30 activity cards covering warm up activities, cooperative activities, problem solving activities, whole group games, and some snackativity ideas for those important brain breaks in the classroom.
Our highly trained FunSkills coordinator will provide teacher support visits to ensure that your teachers are able to implement FunSkills into your school.
