Physical development is one of the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and is classified as one of the Prime areas of learning. Supporting children’s Development in the Early Years will help develop both children’s fine and gross motor skills.
We have been working really hard on our physical development and love our ‘ride on time’ where we get to use all of the bikes and scooters in the yard. During this time we have been developing a sense of road safety and have been learning to respond to traffic signals and deciding whether or not it is safe to use the crossing.
As well as this, we love using the parachute in our P.E. sessions and have been learning to follow and respond to simple instructions.
