Physical & Dance Suite

A separate room dedicated to Physical Development. The Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 states that: "Physical Development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food."

This dedicated Suite provides opportunities for children to explore, from sitting on their own to throwing a ball, children gradually develop the physical skills needed for their adult lives. Physical development includes both growth and the ability to use muscles and body parts for particular skills. Throughout the early years, children are learning to do new things with their bodies and this Suite encourages these skills, through dance, movement, Gross & Fine Motor Activities.

As children grow in their appreciation of the beauty of music & dance, they will acquire a gift that will bring them great pleasure. Music brings another dimension to their lives together with movement these will enhance children's development in many ways.

In 2017 Boogie Beat will be joining nursery.

Boogie Beat are music & movement classes which are energetic & fun, They combine music, song and dance to give children a structured and enjoyable learning and development experience. They use a wide range of props, including puppets, scarves, bean bags, big ball, parachute and much more!
