Introduction

Physical activity is a basic physiological need of both children and adults. Even though we do not perceive a lack of physical activity as intensively as we perceive a lack of food or liquids (hunger, thirst), physical activity is indispensable for the right development and functioning of human organs.

From birth a child’s muscular system develops thanks to natural movement (crawling, climbing etc.) thus building the muscle corset which is necessary for the correct development of the skeleton and good body posture in different natural positions: sitting, standing, walking, running, etc. Body movement enhances the functioning of internal organs and accompanies almost every mental activity of a child.

The amount of physical activities in pre-schoolers often takes up several hours a day. Yet according to the recommendations of many authors including American sources (e.g. NASPE), the minimal requirement regarding spontaneous physical activity is merely 60 minutes a day, which we consider as insufficient. However, experts recommend supplementing spontaneous physical activities with directed ones, lasting at least 60 minutes.

Projects

The publication was created with the support of the project of Masaryk University Development Fund (MUNI/FR/0942/2016) “Multimedia learning e-publications as an innovative feature in teaching physical education and health-promoting courses” carried out at the Faculty of Education, Masaryk University, Brno.

The theoretical part of the book draws on the evidence gathered in the project “Research into the curriculum of Physical Education and Health Education” (MUNI/A/0994/2016).

The aim of the work is to innovate physical education and health-promoting courses in the following study programmes: Teaching for pre-primary schools, Teaching for primary schools and Health Education. The electronic learning materials are designed for students of teacher training study programmes, teachers and other teaching staff to facilitate the development of physical literacy in the area of health-promoting physical activities, to enhance their knowledge and to serve as an inspiration.
