“Fun Start, Move Smart! Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) Introductory Workshop” by Freeplay

(For All NROC Coaches)


The Fun Start, Move Smart! Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) Introductory Workshop is targeted at early childhood educators to introduce and enhance the teaching of FMS to children aged 2 to 8 years old. Through this, it is hoped that Singapore children can achieve physical literacy and be prepared for an active and enriching lifestyle in adulthood.

FMS form the building blocks that underpin daily living activities. These skills refer to movement such as walking, running, leaping, balancing, throwing, catching and much more. The early years are critical in helping children build this foundation of FMS. Children who lack FMS competency will be less likely to acquire sport-specific and complex movement in their growing years.

The 1.5 day workshop focuses on exploring the FMS of locomotion, object control and stability in a fun and creative manner. Educators will get to explore and participate in insightful motor skills activities especially designed in progressive stages for young children. Educators will also be shown how the activities can be integrated with lessons in other developmental domains. 

Course Outline

  • Learn creative ideas on using inexpensive equipment or readily available recycled materials from our daily environment to conduct FMS activities
  • Tips and ideas to tackle common challenges faced by educators in teaching FMS to young children

Awards and Certification

Participants must complete both sessions of the workshop and submit an FMS assignment on Day 2 of the workshop to be awarded with the Certificate of Participation by Sport Singapore (SportSG).
