Physical Literacy is a disposition that develops throughout life through a variety of movement experiences. As we develop Physical Literacy we understand that we are all one whole being not a separate ‘mind’ and ‘body.’ As we learn about ourselves as ‘embodied’ we learn that for all of us physical interaction with the world contributes to who we are and to fulfil our true potential we need to find ways to be physically active.
