Physical Development in EYFS

This term Mr. Palmer has been leading our PE sessions. Whilst the main aim was to practise a range of gross motor skills, we also found lots of opportunities to promote Listening and Attention and Personal, Social and Emotional Development too. Listening to and following instructions has been imperitive to these sessions and we have seen the children paying close attention to the guidance given in order to develop their skills further. Working with a partner and sharing resources is not something that always comes easy in Early Years, but over the last few weeks we have really noticed some great progress. The children always look forward to these sessions and have made huge improvements with spatial awareness, moving with control, balance, throwing and catching, both individually and with a partner.
