OCM and OALM Cover

A unique set of multimedia resources designed to promote high quality movement education and physical education for children aged 3 - 14 years.

  • These aims are achieved by providing:

  • A range of movement capabilities and motor patterns with approaches and guides to movement observation.
  • Analysis grids describing capabilities and movement patterns.
  • Strategies and ideas for development, suggesting approaches and ideas for learning and teaching.
  • A rich and engaging resource including:
