Sessions & learning outcomes

All of the activity programmes through every course and age group are of high quality and have been proven safe and suitable for children. The activities that we cover are also proven successful as they have been designed and developed by experienced teachers, advisors and inspectors with many years of experience.

The lesson plans develop from familiarisation to co-ordination, basic game activities through to progressive skill practices and into game specific practices and development. The game activities include sports such as tennis, football, rugby, hockey, cricket, volleyball, rounders, netball and basketball

Nurseries & Pre-school

An ever growing aspect of our business is the work we do with nurseries & pre-schools. We adhere closely to the Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines for Physical Education to ensure that all our sports programmes fulfill the necessary requirements and criteria for this stage. In addition to our core physical education we also introduce personal social & emotional, communication and problem solving, reasoning and numeracy into the programmes.

Below we have outlined the Physical Education requirements for the Early Years Foundation Stage. If you are associated with a nursery, pre-school or primary then please download our prospectus for more information on our range of services.

Early Years Foundation Stage - Physical Development

Youngstars

Requirements

The physical development of babies and young children must be encouraged through the provision of opportunities for them to be active and interactive and to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement. They must be supported in using all of their senses to learn about the world around them and to make connections between new information and what they already know. They must be supported in developing an understanding of the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices in relation to food.

Aspects of Physical Development

What Physical Development means for children

Babies and children learn by being active and Physical Development takes place across all areas of Learning and Development.

Physical Development helps children gain confidence in what they can do.

Physical Development enables children to feel the positive benefits of being healthy and active.

Physical Development helps children to develop a positive sense of well-being.

Good health in the early years helps to safeguard health and well-being throughout life. It is important that children develop healthy habits when they first learn about food and activity. Growing with appropriate weight gain in the first years of life helps to guard against obesity in later life.

BENEFITS OF A YOUNGSTARS SESSION

There are many fundamental physical benefits to a Youngstars session; improved motor skills, better balance and coordination, development of hand to eye coordination.

The activities work all major muscle groups in the body in multi directional movements; throwing, catching, running, jumping.

The children will develop spatial awareness and respect for other's personal space.

On a social level, Youngstars has seen time and time again improved confidence in children that were reluctant or shy but given the encouragement they will flourish and express themselves through physical activity.

To give a focus and a channel for physical exertion children have been reported to be better behaved and more attentive.

Sessions are designed to be fun but at the same time disciplined, they will therefore learn to follow instruction and respect an authority figure other than their parents or carer.
