The knowledge of fundamental movement skills is an essential component of students’ learning in PDHPE. It is important to remember that students do not pick up fundamental movement skills naturally as part of their normal growth and development. It takes between 240 and 600 minutes of instructional time to become proficient in one fundamental movement skill and the best time for developing fundamental movement skills is the early years of schooling.
