Pratham's Storyweaver celebrates the birthday of Dhyanchand which falls on 29th of August which is National Sports of Day in India.

How does one go about bridging the gap between the syllabus for physical education and the actual execution of it during the games period? Nidhi Tiwari tell us how we can develop a sports curriculum and shares with us a sample lesson plan to get us started.


A sports class is a great forum for students to explore and express themselves, as it does not place certain external demands on them such as of exams or homework, yet deals with very sensitive issues. It gives the students a chance to exercise both the growing body and the growing mind. The possibilities of connecting the learning happening here with the rest of the curricula are immense. When engaged in a physical activity, one can be totally free from scores, competition and all the rest of it.
