Climb, Climb, Climb !!!!!!!

We have an exciting new addition in our outdoor area this week and the children have been developing their gross motor skills on the climbing wall.¬† Climbing is an excellent support which brings many amazing benefits to children and among these benefits are increasing¬† strength and flexibility in children’s development. It also builds confidence and self esteem while improving hand, feet and eye coordination . Climbing is great to develop communication and listening skills as well as relieving stress.¬†

A day outside …

We have been enjoying the weather and making the most of it by playing outside! We made some lovely yellow gloop today which helped us to explore our senses. It also developed our language through describing the texture of the gloop , “Sticky, slimy, cold, soft slippery”. We have also enjoyed having a picnic in the garden with our friends and develop our physical skills by playing on the bikes.
