The innovative Leapfrogs" series helps the non-specialist infant teacher implement the physical education curriculum. Each title contains information on necessary subject knowledge, teaching strategies, progression and achievement, and assessment. Detailed monthly lesson plans and accompanying notes guide and advise teachers on lesson content, and on the process of planning, performing and evaluating, in line with National Curriculum requirements. This work features stimulating ideas to help the teacher to engage children in different ways of travelling on hands and feet, jumping and landing, rolling, balancing, upending, climbing and swinging on the floor and using apparatus. It links a series of actions together, and repeats and improves them."
