We understand and value the need to develop children’s fine and gross motor skills.  This is a Prime area of learning and is essential for other skills to develop e.g. writing.  Children learn to balance, climb and run and have the space to do so.  Children also practice using fine motor skills and are encouraged to use tools such as scissors, develop progressive hand grips and mark making both inside and out.  They gain an understanding of how to be healthy and why it is important to look after our bodies as well as our minds.
