What do your students need to learn?

Gathering and analysing a range of information about the body care and physical safety learning needs of your students will help you to identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they need to develop in their class programmes. Possible learning outcomes that relate to the learning experiences in this book are listed below. You could draw on these outcomes to set goals with your students and to provide them with feedback about their progress. Although learning outcomes are organised under particular key concepts, some may also help to develop other concepts. The focus learning outcomes for each key concept are identified in bold print, and assessment opportunities have been identified for them. Page numbers are provided for all the outcomes.
