This is Summer Course involves planning, practical, theory and group delivery exploring the PERMA (Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishment) model as an effective approach to developing Physical Literacy and well-being among students right through the life-course of the Primary school years. Participants will receive multiple free resources for use in PE, and have the opportunity to develop a school or class plan for PE delivery across the year. The course will be made up of theory delivered in the classroom and practical sessions, which will focus on PE activities. This course will explore and plan for the idea of a wellness week in the school and participants will develop an appreciation and an understanding for Functional Play (Mechikoff 2010; Rowlands 2013) as a tool for advancing citizenship and socialisation (SPHE). There will be special guest tutors, themselves teachers, who will focus on areas such as yoga, co-operative games, and gymnastics.
