Parents were able to see physical education – and their children – in action at Linlithgow Primary School last week.

The school’s P1 class had their co-ordination and motorskills tested and worked on during a Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP) session in the gym hall as mums and dads looked on.

Under the instruction of specialist PE teacher Lesley Malone, the youngest members of the school walked, ran, jumped and bounced to show off 
how much control they have over their movements.

PMP is designed to help children with their fine motor and gross motor skills. Fine motor skills include such things as the ability to hold and manipulate a pencil, colour in and use scissors, while gross motor skills use large muscle groups in activities such as skipping, running and riding a bike.
