How can Handball improve the quality of your PE Curriculum?
Handball cuts across many strands of physical literacy – it is an ideal sport for primary PE with throwing, catching, balance, running, jumping and, crucially, communication elements – skills transferable to many other sports and also to the classroom. The sport is simple and adaptive, suitable for indoors and out with minimal equipment.
