Reception – Physical Development

Physical activity is vital in children’s all-round development, enabling them to
pursue happy, healthy and active lives. Gross and fine motor experiences
develop incrementally throughout early childhood, starting with sensory
explorations and the development of a child’s strength, co-ordination and
positional awareness through tummy time, crawling and play movement with both
objects and adults. By creating games and providing opportunities for play both
indoors and outdoors, adults can support children to develop their core strength,
stability, balance, spatial awareness, co-ordination and agility. Gross motor skills
provide the foundation for developing healthy bodies and social and emotional
well-being. Fine motor control and precision helps with hand-eye co-ordination,
which is later linked to early literacy. Repeated and varied opportunities to explore
and play with small world activities, puzzles, arts and crafts and the practice of
using small tools, with feedback and support from adults, allow children to develop
proficiency, control and confidence.
