MoveWell provides practical ideas, advice and support to help develop children’s confidence, knowledge, skills and attitudes so that they can enjoy participating in physical activity.

It combines evidence and research into a practical games-based resource that has strong links to the health and physical education learning area in The New Zealand Curriculum.

The MoveWell resource guides teachers to develop children’s movement skills in an enjoyable, games-centred way. Individual movement skills, such as throwing, catching, kicking, passing, and so on are important to learn. However, these are best taught through games – as effective movement solutions to the problems posed by the game. This resource focuses on teaching children the skills that give them the competence and confidence to play games with others and feel a sense of success.
