Today was our second physical day! Every Wednesday we do PE in nursery so we decided to fill the rest of our day with lots of fun physical activities.
It is important to do big movement activities that build the muscles in arms, legs and shoulders. This helps with balance and coordination and is important before we start building the smaller muscles in our hands and wrists ready for writing. Each week we will be doing different physical activities to build muscles, strength and coordination.
So far we have…
walked up to the secret garden to collect leaves and conkers
had races on the sports field
ran and used the apparatus in PE
used crayons to draw and write on big paper on the floor
turned over the tables and wrapped cling film around to paint on
crawled, jumped and climbed with the soft play
done some tricky balancing in yoga
and we even joined key stage two for a bit of take ten dancing!
What will we get up to next week?
