Physical Literacy

Playground markings have become an important learning tool in every child's Physical Literacy development

Physical literacy is the ability to use a range of fundamental movement skills in a competent manner, with the capacity to apply them with confidence in a range of settings that can lead to sustained involvement in sport and physical activity.

Physically literate children will be able to perform a range of fundamental movement skills e.g. hop, climb or catch at levels of agility, balance and coordination appropriate to their capabilities. A child’s movement confidence will develop as they become more competent in performing these skills.

Most children’s first entry into the physical world of sport and physical education is in primary school.  At first4playgrounds we can ensure that your playground will provide the necessary environment for children to develop.

Last year Prime Minister David Cameron announced a renewed package of funding for PE and school sport. Through a new 'Sport Premium' the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.

This funding will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support.


Sports court markings are a great way to increase physical exercise and develop childrens coordernation, movement and sporting ability as well as introducing positive competitive interaction through sports.

Multi sports court markings are a fantastic way to make the most of the playground area and develop school physical exercise programme. The multi sports  markings include Netball, Football, Basketball. Ball games develop coordernation and fine motor skills and increase agility in movement. Ideal for Key stage 1 primary school children up to seconary schools and academys.



Target throws are  colourful playground games which develop hand eye coordernation, balance, sequencing, timing and fine motor skills as well as developing positive social interactions through play. The children throw beanbags or stones at the target and the winner is the child who wins the highest score.



Dance Class  and Mirror Me games are a fun way for children to interact together and explore physical , emotional and social reactions whilst playing with eachother. Studies have shown children who play games that encourage movement and coordernation become better learners in the future and have develpoped good spacial awareness and fine motor skills.
