Being a Sportsperson Progression of Skills
Our Sports People Vocabulary
Physical Education in the early years involves creating games and providing opportunities for play both indoors and outdoors. 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.
