Physical play includes activities that use physical movements to allow children to use their energy, gives them the chance to develop gross and fine motor skills and learn new things and socialize.
In our nursery we spend a lot of time outdoors to stay active but we also investigate lots of physical play indoors that helps us to develop the whole body and muscles.
Developing gross motor skills through play is an important role in developing the upper body and shoulders which enables children in the future to master more precise functions such as writing, manipulating small objects and using one handed tools and equipment.
Physical activities help also to build confidence, social skills, elevate the mood, encourage children to try new activities. enhance concentration and resilience and maintain mental and emotional wellbeing.
