For each of these areas, LittleStars Rugby schools programme sets out what the children should be taught as well as the outcomes and the expected standards of children's performance.
INCLUDING ALL CHILDREN
Under the requirements of equal opportunities legislation covering gender and disability, LittleStars Rugby provides children with an inclusive framework that offers opportunities for ALL children to achieve their full potential in preparation for further learning and life.
LittleStars Rugby contributes to the Curriculum Cymreig by developing a child's understanding of the cultural identity unique to Wales, an understanding of Welsh heritage and language by including key words in Welsh and using the strong Welsh affinity with Rugby Football to build this association.
THE FOUNDATION PHASE FOR CHILDRENS PHYSICAL EDUCATION FROM 2-7 STATES THAT:
''A child's physical development, enthusiasm and energy for movement should be promoted through helping them use their bodies by encouraging spatial awareness, balance, control, co-ordination and developing motor/ manipulation skills. They should also develop their gross and fine motor skills, physical control, mobility and spatial awareness.'
LittleStars Rugby achieves this through a variety of games, drills and skills based activities which ensure all the children taking part in a class fulfil the governments recommended Physical Educational framework for development.
All LittleStars Rugby sessions incorporate the Foundation Phase framework for children's learning in it's programme, and contribute towards positive Foundation Phase outcomes.
