Getting children moving isn't just good for health but may also boost brainpower. In this very practical webinar, Deb Garea will take you through the process of designing and delivering physical education lessons that link to literacy (Y0–2).

Everyone loves a freebie, especially teachers so Deb is also giving away her unit plans overviews, session plans, and suggested equipment lists to help get you started. These resources are based on a successful PE programme she introduced at Mt Maunganui Primary School in 2018.

Don't delay, register now and help your students learn more effectively by introducing fun active games such as Alphabet Soup and Letter Jab into your PE programme. Your learners will thank you for it!
