Physical Development is one of the Prime areas of learning within the EYFS
This area is broken into two aspects;
Moving and Handling-Children should be confident when using gross and fine motor skills.They will show competence when handling simple tools and begin to use writing tools with increased control. By the End of Reception children should be able to form most letters correctly and control letter size when writing independently.
Health and Self-care- Children should be confident within their own self-care, including: toileting, dressing and basic Hygiene. children should be able to tackle challenges safely and be able to express an understanding of maintaining a healthy body and mind.
Reception will take part in PE on a Tuesday Morning.
Please ensure your child has a full PE kit with their name in each piece of clothing.
Children should leave their PE kit in school everyday.
Children should be able to get themselves dressed indepentenly. This is an extremely important skill and something that your child should be cofident doing in order to reach their Early Learning Goal by the end of Reception. Please encourage your child to keep practising at home.
During Mental Health Awareness Day (10.10.17). Reception used circle time to talk about keeping a healthy body and mind. Participated in Yoga and meditation and enjoyed the Autumn sunshine whilst drawing pictures of things that make them happy. :)
Reception had a fantastic time during their gymnastics session. They got dressed independently and sorted themselves into groups of two with ease. The children followed the coach's instructions and learned some new gymnastic vocabulary including, star, stretch and tuck movements.
Well done Reception! don't forget us when you're on the Olympic podium.
our school is taking part in the Flouride Toothbrusing Scheme. Each child involved as their own school toothbrush which they use once a day to brush their teeth. If your child has not yet signed up and you would like to do so please contact Mrs Farrell.
