Numeracy & Literacy in PE


Literacy in the curriculum is comprised of four aspects:

  • Listening
  • Writing
  • Reading
  • Speaking

These are all crucial to teamwork, communication and therefore success in a sporting context.


Sport and Physical Education is forever being broken down into statistics and figures, allowing people the opportunity to work on their numeracy skills.

Different sports will allow the individuals involved to calculate differently and to test the individuals, examples of these are scoring, success rates, distance, time, angles etc.
