Physical Development

Children have access to the outdoor environment on a daily basis come rain or shine!  We provide the children with a wide range of opportunities in the outside environment covering all areas of learning. There are lots of opportunities for the children to develop their gross and fine motor skills as well as a range of other physical skills. 


In Year R the children take part in Write Dance which is a series of movements to music which help the children develop their gross motor skills.  The children then complete the same movements on paper to the same music which helps to further develop both their fine and gross motor skills.  The children really enjoy drawing to the music!


The children also take part in P.E. sessions each week covering gymnastics, dance and outdoor games.  At the beginning of the year these take part in the hall and in the summer P.E. is held outside.
