Movement play

Our children have been naturally driven to climb and balance as they have explored the climbing wall and the various pieces of climbing equipment outside on our grassed area. What better way to help develop future readers and writers; as if the gross motor skills aren’t in place first then the fine won’t follow…So we get our children out being physical on a huge scale and encourage crawling and climbing as these ‘cross body’ movements fire up the synapses in their brains and once these connections and pathways get forged and become stronger our children are more likely to fly at school as reading and writing will come so much more easily to them… and you thought we were just ‘playing’ didn’t you?!💜xxxx
