Physical Literacy as Adventures Activities in School Physical Education
How can a pedagogical model for adventurous activities be implemented within the physical education curriculum?
Adventurous activities are a statutory aspect of physical education provision in Wales yet pupils’ experience of AA is often limited to unchallenging orienteering lessons or a one-off visit to an outdoor centre. Graham’s study explores the implementation and impact of a new approach to outdoor and adventurous activities for pupils in Wales that seeks to increase the opportunities for school-based, teacher-initiated and pupil-foused AA. Drawing upon the work of Dr Andy Williams and Dr Nalda Wainwright this study examines Physical Literacy links between adventurous activities and school-based physical education.
