F1 Physical Development Morning in EYFS

On Wednesday, F1 children had their Physical Development morning. Parents were invited into school to join their child in a variety of activities, all of which encouraged the development of physical skills. The children engaged in a range of activities in the classrooms and sports hall. There was lots of climbing, balancing, running, kicking, throwing, jumping, and even some food tasting. Parents had a chance to join in too, participating in a game of tug-of-war!

‘Physical Development’ is one of the prime areas in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The prime areas are fundamental to a child’s development because they lay the foundations for success in all other areas of learning and life. During our Physical Development morning children had the opportunity to develop their fine and gross motor skills, as well as their self-care skills.

Gross motor skills involve the large muscles of the body that enable such functions as maintaining balance, walking, climbing, jumping, pushing, pulling and ball skills.  Fine motor skills are the small actions a child makes and are essential for performing everyday tasks such as getting dressed, feeding oneself, brushing hair and teeth, and using one handed tools, like scissors and pencils. At school we are encouraging the children to become independent when dressing, feeding and toileting themselves. We had different activities set up in our classrooms to support the development of health and self-care skills, including food tasting and washing dolls.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on this fun filled morning. The children loved sharing their learning with their adults and it was so wonderful to see our parents join in with the different activities so enthusiastically.  A special thank you goes to Mr Richard for setting up the fun and challenging activities in the hall, and for being the referee in the parents’ tug-of war competition.
